    There is parking available at Wheatley Campus on a first come, first served basis. If the campus carpark is full, we recommend you use the nearby Park & Ride (see below for details). 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 all 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:

    Wheatley Campus carpark (OX33 1HX)
    Thornhill Park & Ride (OX3 8DP)
