    Our small-group, socially-distanced tours are led by a Student Ambassador and have been specially designed to give you a safe way to explore our amazing spaces. Each tour lasts approximately 45 mins.

    Oxford Brookes may need to cancel your campus tour at short notice owing to changing circumstances on our campuses, or in response to national or local government travel restrictions. Should this occur, you will be notified by email as soon as possible, with an outline about how priority rebooking will be arranged.  

    If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us here.


    How many people will be on my tour?

    We are following the ‘rule of six’ meaning that you will be with up to 5 other prospective students, and one student ambassador.

    Can my parents/carers come?

    Unfortunately we need to maximise space on the tour for prospective students and minimise the number of people on our campuses at any time. One parent or carer is able to come with you to the registration desk, where they are able to remain for the duration of the tour; however please consider whether it is necessary for you to be accompanied. On the day itself the student ambassador will offer to parents/carers any unfilled tour spaces on the tour on a first-come-first served basis, and subject to track and trace protocol.  

    What COVID-19 measure do I need to take?
    Oxford Brookes is offering this activity in line with the latest advice from the UK Government. Please see here for the latest travel advice and the latest rules for England on what you can and cannot do. You must not visit our campus if you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, or have had a positive test result. Please wash your hands before leaving and when returning home and sanitise from the stations on campus when you arrive. We also ask that all staff, students, and visitors abide by our ‘ Keeping each other safe on campus’ guidance, which includes maintaining a social distance and wearing a face covering while you are on site.  

    Is the Campus Tour safe?

    We have carefully redesigned out campus tours to reduce the risk of infection. Routes around our campus will follow established one-way systems, and ‘stops’ will only happen in well-ventilated, uncrowded spaces. 

    Can I park? 

    Yes! Parking is free of charge. We recommend that you park at Headington Hill Hall and then walk over to the John Henry Brookes Building to begin your campus tour.
