  • Overview

    Headington Campus is home to a thriving student community living and learning in a modern, uplifting environment across three sites.

    The buildings on campus house first-rate academic and leisure facilities including collaborative work spaces, the main University library, several catering outlets and a sports centre. The student support team, based in the John Henry Brookes Building, ensures that students have access to a full range of support and advice services on campus.

    Marston Road Site sits one mile east of Oxford City Centre. With first rate facilities for Healthcare courses, it’s an excellent environment for studying.

    Headington Campus is made up of three sites around Headington, on the eastern side of Oxford city centre. These sites are:

    • Headington Road
    • Headington Hill, just across the road
    • Marston Road, a 20 minute walk from the other two sites. Marston Road is less than a mile from the John Radcliffe Hospital, which provides excellent facilities for our healthcare students based there.

    Each site is around a 30 minute walk, or a 10 minute bus ride, from Oxford city centre. BROOKESbuses link Headington with our other Oxford campuses, all our halls of residence, Oxford city centre and the railway station.

    You can find detailed information about getting around Oxford on our travel pages, and a map showing the location of all our Oxford campuses here.
