    Please note that only campus tours (including accommodation) are taking place at Harcourt Hill Campus at Open Days in 2018. There will be no bookable sessions, and no representatives from the various teams you might want to talk to. If you are driving to Open Day you are welcome to use the first come, first served carpark to attend your campus tour and then use the free BROOKESbus service to visit Headington Campus (where there is no parking available). Oxford has excellent public transport links, so however you travel to us on the day you'll have no problem getting around the city.

    Oxford railway station and the car parks that we recommend are served by our Open Day BROOKESbus service and there will be staff present in green t-shirts to guide you to the bus stops - they are here to help, so make sure you ask them!

  • Available carparks:
