While construction work is being carried out on the car park adjacent, access to the FMRIB building is only possible by foot.  Visitors are recommended to go to the main hospital entrance and follow the signs to FMRIB.  A guide to this route is available here.

The FMRIB Buildings are located at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Headington, to the east of Oxford (see Google Maps). The main FMRIB Building is adjacent to Car Park 1, between the West Wing and the Main Hospital (click image below to download full plan as PDF).  The Annexe is located on the other side of Car Park 1, in the south east wing of the Wolfson Building, adjacent to the Industrial Block.
