Worcester College Accommodation Question

Hello. My daughter has been offered a place at Worcester College and is due to be commencing her studies there in October. It appears that there is no parking at the college and I am wondering how students move their belongings into the on site accommodation. Any information would be gratefully received.
There is a big field by the orchard where parents can park! I'd actually say Worcester College is one of the few colleges where moving in/out isn't such a big deal, parking-wise. Fear not :biggrin:

As the lonely goatherd says it’s not too bad. For drop off you get slots for freshers which makes it v easy. Thereafter is a bit hit and miss but as we have a long drive down there we have found that the best thing is to stay over in a premier inn Or something just out of town the night before then do the pick up at 7 am. From the car park, my sons accommodation is a good five minute walk, so with 2 of us an unload or load takes over an hour. Remember Worcester is a huge site! We take a foldable trolley, which helps. Your daughter will have a great time there. V friendly college. My lad settled in very well and is having a ball.
Also, you might want to head over to the Oxford Parents Association thread. There are loads of tips and bags of information and support for us parent on there!
