On arrival, you should report to the Porters' Lodge in New Inn Hall Street. Further information about getting to Oxford and to St Peter’s can be found here.
Arriving from outside the UK
For students coming from outside the UK, you can find useful information on the University website here.
Because storage space is at a premium, luggage cannot usually be accepted in advance. In special cases, however, arrangements can be made, and applications should first be made to the Accommodation Office (email@example.com). If it is agreed to accept luggage in advance, it should be addressed clearly (Your name, St Peter’s College, New Inn Hall Street, Oxford OX1 2DL).
The College cannot accept liability for loss or damage to luggage sent in advance and suggests, therefore, that it should be adequately insured.
Arriving by train
Please be aware that there is disruption to train services in Oxford due to the redevelopment of Oxford Station. There will be no trains running to Oxford Station at the weekends in late September and early October. Further information can be found here.
Arriving by car
If you are planning to come to Oxford by car, you should be aware that the traffic in and around the city is heavy and parking is notoriously difficult. See this page for further information.
St Peter's is located within the Oxford Zero Emissions Zone. You can find out more about how to pay the ZEZ, and about discounts for students who are entitled to a full maintenance loan, on the City Council website here.
For Undergraduate Freshers arriving on Sunday 2 October only:
To help spread the flow of arrivals over the day, those living within 3 hours’ travel time of Oxford are asked to arrive in the morning, so that students with longer travel distances can arrive in the afternoon.
For the purpose of unloading, vehicles should park on New Inn Hall Street, where parking restrictions will have been temporarily suspended (there is no parking in the College grounds). The College Porters will provide you with a parking permit valid for up to 30 minutes. The Porters’ Lodge telephone number is +44 (0)1865 278900.
Once you have collected your room key you will be greeted by members of the Junior Common Room (JCR) Freshers’ Committee who will help you to your room.
