Travelling to college

City of Oxford College is based in Oxford town centre, with our specialist technology campus located in Blackbird Leys.

We encourage our students to use alternative modes of transport other than cars. By doing this we are aiming to reduce the amount of traffic as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle and living environment.

City of Oxford College city centre campus is in Oxford town centre, adjacent to the Westgate shopping centre and Oxford Ice Rink.   

The technology campus is a short walk from Blackbird Leys, Greater Leys and Cowley.   

We actively encourage our students to cycle to college and there is plenty of bike parking available on-site and cycle lanes locally.
