Getting to the King's Centre

If you are taking a standard written exam at the King's Centre, follow these 3 simple steps:

Step 1: Check your personal Google calendar from Week 7 for the dates and times of your exams.

Step 2: Catch the dedicated exam bus service (see the timetable) to get to and from the King's Centre. Alternatively, the site is located a short walk from the Oxford train station and the standard U1 BROOKESbus and other local routes. If making your own way to the venue, please ensure you allow extra travel time (note, there is no parking for students at the King's Centre).

Step 3: Please arrive at the King's Centre at least 30 minutes prior to your exam start time. There will be clear signposting on the day and University staff on hand to help direct you. There is a large reception area outside the exam rooms with toilets, tables and chairs, comfy sofas and a cafe.
