Arrival and College registration process

Details of arrival processes and College registration will be sent by email shortly.

Please note that it is essential that you bring your passport and any relevant visas with you when you arrive and report to the Undergraduate Administrator for registration. 

Arriving in Oxford by car

Entrance for vehicles to the Broad Street site (the main College site) is via the back gate, which is accessed from St Giles’ (almost opposite the Martyrs’ Memorial).

There is a 5mph speed limit in the Quad. When parking your car, please respect our beautiful lawns: do not drive over the edges. There is no parking in the main drive, as others need entry and access, nor in front of the Hall steps, Buttery and SCR area, as this is an Emergency Escape Area.

Once parked, you should report to the Porters’ Lodge to collect your room key and pick up a parking slip for display on your vehicle dashboard. The Porters’ Lodge telephone number is 01865 277777.

You will have 45 minutes to unload, and then you must park your car off site. Any vehicle staying longer than 45 minutes will incur a charge of £30.

Disabled students: if you need special parking arrangements, please contact the Undergraduate Administrator.
