Transport & Accommodation
How to get to Oxford
Oxford is not a campus university, so once you're here you can use our interactive, searchable map of Oxford's colleges, halls, departments, libraries and museums to find your way around. You can also use Google Maps to find your way around Oxford on foot or using public transport.
From London airports
From London Stansted airport, take the Stansted Express train service to Liverpool Street and then take the tube to either Paddington or Marylebone for direct trains to Oxford. Alternatively there is a National Express 757 coach service.
Direct services run from London Paddington (serving Oxford station) and London Marylebone (serving Oxford and Oxford Parkway stations). Other services operate from the north via Birmingham New Street; from the south via Reading; and from the west via Didcot or Reading.
For details and to plan your journey, see contact National Rail Enquiries.
For information on coaches from other major cities and airports, contact National Express.
