Travelling by car and parking

We strongly advise not to come by car unless absolutely necessary, since parking is very restricted in the whole city of Oxford and on the University campuses.

If you wish to come by car, we recommend you use the Park and ride bus services. Park & ride car parks are clearly signposted as you approach the city and the bus service is frequent all day and through the evening.


Driving to Headington Campus

From the south (London) – take the M40 northbound, leave at junction 8 and follow the signs for Oxford along the A40. Then follow the signs for the city centre on London Road.

From the north (Birmingham) – take the M40 southbound, leave at junction 8a and follow the signs for Oxford along the A40. Then follow the signs for the city centre on London Road.

If you are driving to Oxford via another route we recommend taking the Ring Road until the Headington Roundabout and following the signs to the city centre along London Road until Headington Campus.


Parking at Headington Campus

Car parking is severely restricted and you should not bring your car unless you have a parking space booked in advance. Free parking in the surrounding area is almost non-existent or, where available, limited to 2-3 hours; you should consider using the Park & Ride service from either Thornhill or Seacourt, both of which will drop you off at Oxford Brookes.

If you are using satellite navigation, the postcode required is OX3 0BP.

We are trying to arrange parking permits for disabled people (TBC).
