Location

Regent’s is ideally located in the heart of the city and University, just off the main thoroughfare of St Giles

The heart of the city

Regent’s Park College lies on Pusey Street, which runs west off St Giles. This is an exceptionally good location for all members of the college community. Although Oxford is notoriously difficult to get around by car, St Giles is very easy to access from the north via the Woodstock and Banbury roads, and college is a mere eight-minute walk from the train station. College is less than five minutes’ walk away from Cornmarket, Oxford’s main shopping street, and is also close to a wide array of pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants. Regent’s is also in a perfect position for easy access from Jericho, an area of north Oxford in which many students opt to live in second year. Regent’s place at the heart of the city makes life at the University simpler and more convenient for all those connected to college.

The heart of the University

Regent’s could not be in a better position to make the most of the ample opportunities available at the University of Oxford. Pusey Street is situated no more than a short walk from all faculties, and is especially close to the Philosophy and Theology faculty library and the Sackler library for Classics. Regent’s is also perfectly located to allow full engagement in a wide range of extracurricular activities. The college boat house, shared with New College, is no more than twenty minutes’ walk away, the University sports facilities at Iffley Road are a ten-minute cycle, and the football pitches and netball court used by college teams are closer still. Pusey Street is also very close to many of the University’s most important music and drama facilities. With so much of the University so close at hand, it is no wonder that Regent’s punches well above its weight in so many fields.
