Estates development

Our estates vision...

Oxford Brookes University is committed to providing an excellent experience for its students, staff and visitors. We are renowned for our excellent teaching and are investing in buildings and facilities to match.

During any on-campus works, we work closely with staff, students and the local community to minimise disruption from any works and also engage these groups in the process early on to make sure we get the best facilities for those that use them.

More information on ongoing projects, latest news and events and works updates can be found on these pages.

Headington Hill site

In June 2022, Oxford Brookes received planning permission for two cutting edge, sustainable buildings for the Headington Hill site which will enhance STEM and creative industries activity. Our vision is to create a facility that not only allows our students and researchers to flourish, but brings the Oxford Brookes community together, boosts local collaboration and helps meet the needs of industry. The new teaching and workshop buildings will be the new home for Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment activity currently based at Wheatley Campus, and we expect both buildings to open their doors from September 2024.

Clive Booth Student Village

The University has been granted planning permission (November 2021) to redevelop part of Clive Booth Student Village. A separate planning application to enable improvements to the footpath that connects the site to our Headington Hill site was approved in January 2022.
