Fantastic facilities, giving you the practical skills you'll need in your career


Our city-centre campus is just a five-minute walk from the train station and served well by buses and dedicated cycle routes, so however you choose to get here, it’ll be safe and convenient. 

Despite its central location, the college’s riverside location is a peaceful and safe environment to study in, with all the facilities you could need. You can focus on your studies in our well-stocked library or get hair and beauty treatments at our salons for a reduced price. If you’ve missed breakfast or forgotten to bring your lunch, you can grab something at our café or Waterside Restaurant. There’s plenty of outdoor seating areas too to hang out with friends and enjoy the good weather, hopefully! 

The campus is right next door to the Westgate shopping centre too! You’ll have plenty of opportunities in your free time to head out and grab a snack or drink from one of the many cafés or go shopping at the supermarket or many high-street fashion stores. 


In recent years, £8m was invested in the transformation of our Technology campus in Blackbird Leys. 

If you’re interested in learning with the best equipment from experienced industry professionals, this is the best place for you. This high-specification facility supports training in a wide range of technological industries, including construction, engineering, IT, computing and motor vehicle. There is also a professional bicycle mechanic workshop, filled with the latest bikes and e-bikes to work on! Every day, you’ll be learning the practical expertise, skills and knowledge you’ll need to go far in a range of exciting and fast-paced technological industries.

I thought the facilities at college were really good and we spent a lot of time hanging out at the Westgate, because it was so close. Most of my friends now are from college and it was nice to see we all came from different places. Grace, Business, Level 3
