By car

Oxford City is committed to reducing carbon emissions and increasing air quality. The City has recently introduced several new measures as part of this scheme, including limiting parking spaces within a central area. In response the College has introduced a STRICT NO PARKING POLICY and a barrier is now in operation to prevent unauthorised parking. Special permission can be requested in advance for Blue Badge holders only.  Please contact (do not email credit card information under any circumstances) if you wish to reserve a Blue Badge parking space.
