COVID-19 Update

Oxford University has a policy that face-coverings must be worn upon entering a University building and in all common indoor areas (all buildings at Begbroke Science Park are owned by the University of Oxford).  We would kindly ask that visitors to Begbroke Science Park wear a face covering (unless they are exempt from doing so) when entering reception and whilst on the premises (including in meeting rooms, restaurant/coffee shop, corridors, hallways, stairs and lifts etc).  This is in addition to any other settings where face-coverings are required by current UK Government legislation.  We would be grateful if you could bring a face-covering with you. This policy extends to all staff, students, visitors, contractors and members of the public.

Begbroke Science Park offers the convenient use of a minibus service travelling between the science park and the city centre.  This is for university members working at Begbroke Science Park, staff of tenant companies and visitors to site. 

Due to COVID-19 safety restrictions, the Begbroke minibus service is operating at reduced capacity (both seating numbers and scheduled timetable and stops).  It is essential that all travel is pre-booked.  Please email by 15:30 on the working day before you wish to travel (so for a journey on Monday please email by 15:30 on the Friday before).  In your email request you will need to supply your permit number, the date on which you want to travel and the departure time and departure location (either Begbroke or Parks Road) of your journey.  All bookings will receive an email confirmation – do not attempt to  travel without confirmation.  Block bookings will not be accepted.  Please wear a face-covering throughout the journey (unless exempt from wearing one).
