The campus

Our sites offer you a welcoming environment where you'll be treated like an adult, with high-specification facilities to fire up your learning.

State-of-the-art workspaces and facilities on two campuses in Oxford

At City of Oxford College, we work with leading employers locally, and from across the UK, to ensure our courses and facilities teach the know-how that is relevant to today’s skilled trades.

The teaching environments across our two sites in Oxford show this; you will receive expert tuition from lecturers in classrooms that replicate real-world settings. For example, if you're training to be a mechanic, you'll learn in one of our garages, with industry-standard equipment.

We have a wide range of facilities to make your education and training as enriching and as practical as possible. From hair and beauty salons, multimedia studios, and kitchens, to well-stocked libraries and engineering workshops. Whether it's our city-centre campus on Oxpens Road, or our Technology campus in Blackbird Leys, you're certain to find a course to inspire your learning!

Take a look below at our virtual tours, or book onto an Open Event to visit us in person and speak to the tutors!
