Travel to the Mathematical Institute
Also see the contact us page for the full address of the department.
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.

Facilities for visitors to the department
The Andrew Wiles Building has been designed with accessibility in mind. Please see the building access guide for details, and please contact Reception before or during your visit if you would like any assistance.
The Andrew Wiles Building has a splendid cafe that departmental visitors and event guests are also welcome to use.
Visitors may find it helpful to know that the first aid room doubles as a private lactation room for people wishing to breastfeed or express milk. Please enquire via Reception if you would like to use the room.
