Coaches from the airport and London stop near Oxford Brookes Headington campus on London Road. If you have lots of luggage with you and need a taxi to your accommodation, stay on the coach until the last stop, which is Gloucester Green coach station in the centre of Oxford. It is much easier to find a taxi from there.
