Visitor Car Parking

  • All visitors to the University are encouraged to use the BROOKESbus in the first instance, as a stand-alone mode of transport or in conjunction with local Park and Ride services. It offers an excellent and sustainable way of getting to all our campuses.

    There are also alternative public transport options operating in and around Oxford including the train and bike hire. Campus map, directions and public transport information are available  here.

    Please be aware that since parking is very restricted in the city and at our campuses, we strongly advise individuals not travel by car unless absolutely necessary.

    If you are visiting the University and wish to park this will need to be arranged by the member of staff that you are visiting, please contact them for more information.

    Visitor parking booking process

    Visitor parking is only bookable during Peak times (defined as 07.00 - 16.30, Monday to Friday). Designated visitor car parking spaces are limited and need to be prebooked by a member of Oxford Brookes staff, prior to the visitor’s arrival.
