Traffic alert: 14 September | University of Oxford

Traffic alert: 14 September

Approximately 8,000 visitors are expected in the city for the University's Open Day event on Friday 14 September.

With a further 1,500 additional people expected to arrive for our Alumni Weekend on the same day, traffic is likely to be heavier than usual.

The Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach (UAO) office has worked closely with the local councils and transport providers to try to minimise disruption to local residents and commuters.

Extra buses will run from the Park & Rides, but there may still be delays and you may wish to allow extra time for commuting. Please consider the potential impact of traffic delays when planning any meetings or events on this date.
