Harwell Campus

Harwell Campus has evolved to form three clusters – space, healthcare & energy, and is home to world-leading organisations such as:

The campus is ideally located for access to the A34 and M4, as well as other science clusters in Oxford and nearby universities. It has very good public transport connections into Didcot, with
a fast train service into Paddington, and Oxford amongst others. The campus also benefits from many bike loan stations throughout and access to national cycle networks.

The MRC Harwell site, within the Harwell Campus, offers extremely generous car parking and the opportunity to be co-housed on a site with The Mary Lyon Centre and Advance, the newly designed scientific training centre, purpose-built to deliver world-class practical and theoretical training courses.
