Travel to the Mathematical Institute
View Mathematical Institute Buildings.

Please be aware there is limited public parking available in the centre of Oxford. The University has very limited parking, and on the ROQ site in particular there is almost no parking available although each building does have two dedicated accessible parking places (the very limited parking is only available via prior booking with a clear explanation of the circumstances of need). We advise using the Park & Ride services, parking at Pear Tree and taking the #300 bus which stops opposite the entrance to the Mathematical Institute on Woodstock Road.

Taxis are readily available from both Oxford Train Station and Gloucester Green Coach Station and the fare to the Mathematical Institute should be approximately £7.00.

Note there are a large number of external cycle racks located on the south and west sides of the building for those coming by bike.
