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

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.

For more information, please see information for newcomers, information for event attendees and the building user guide or contact us via @email or @email as appropriate.
