How to find us

Oxford is about 60 miles (90 kms) northwest of London and has excellent road and national rail links. Regular coach services connect Oxford with London, and also with Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports. For directions, please refer to the University website. If you do travel by car, please note that parking in the city centre is very limited. 

Our Location

New College is located in the centre of Oxford, and the main entrance to the College is on Holywell Street (postcode OX1 3BN‎). Graduate accommodation is located in the Weston Buildings at New College Sports Ground on St Cross Road (postcode OX1 3TJ).

Arriving by car 

If you arrive by car, the Porters will tell you where to park while it is unloaded, but it should quickly be removed to make room for other arrivals. If you have your own car, you will have to make arrangements for parking outside College once you have unloaded, as Junior Members are not permitted to park in College. Please note that parking in Oxford is very difficult.
