Priorities

Buildings

Buildings and infrastructure are among the key priorities of the Oxford Thinking Campaign.

Oxford’s historic architecture is well known, yet the physical infrastructure of the collegiate University that we see today has evolved over many centuries.  These changes continue as we build, restore and reconfigure to meet the academic challenges of the 21st century.

Among the construction projects made possible by the Oxford Thinking Campaign are:

  • the Institute for Cancer Medicine
  • the Earth Sciences building
  • the innovative refashioning of the Ashmolean Museum.

In addition, the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter now provides newly refurbished quarters for the Humanities Division, award-winning student housing for Somerville College and a newly built Mathematics Institute. It also houses a new medical centre serving the local community.

These and other developments will provide the very best facilities to support the collegiate University’s vital research and teaching, and enhance the experience of its students.
