Crescent hall is in the Cowley area on a BROOKESbus route to the Headington Campus. Alternatively you can walk or cycle from this hall to your lectures. It is also very close to other Cowley-based halls: Paul Kent Hall and Parade Green. The area is very popular among students with its range of supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants, bars and clubs.

In the evenings and at the weekend the BROOKESbus also connects our Cowley halls to the Cowley Road and City Centre. Local bus links are also available throughout the week and weekend.
