  • By coach

    A coach will be arranged for your students to the campus.

    Please arrange for the coach driver to drop you off at the B4 bus stop on the London Road (the lay-by which the Oxford Tube pulls into). This is a busy road so you should ensure your students alight from the coach as quickly as possible. On arrival you will be met by a student ambassador and taken to the main reception to register. At the end of the day please arrange for the coach driver to collect you from the same place, the B4 bus stop.

    Please note – there is no parking available for coaches on the day so please arrange with your coach company to park elsewhere, for example at Thornhill park and ride.

    If you are travelling with students in a minibus, we do have a limited number of parking spaces available. Please contact us as soon as possible if you will require this.

    On arrival at the campus you will be met by a student ambassador and taken to the main reception to register.
