Campbell is no longer wanted at Ninian Park and Bluebirds boss Dave Jones has been trying to ship the forward out of his squad in recent weeks.
Jones has succeeded in that quest before the close of the transfer window after Campbell headed to Oxford for the next four months.
The 26-year-old has struggled to impress in South Wales since joining the club in a near £1 million deal from Middlesbrough in March 2002.
He linked up with Cardiff permanently after a prolific loan spell but he failed to reproduce that form on a consistent basis and ended last season on loan at Doncaster Rovers.
The arrival of Campbell at The Kassam Stadium eases Oxford's search for new firepower after the club tried to sign Bristol Rovers ace Junior Agogo.
