Planning permission was granted by Oxford City Council’s Planning Review Committee for the redevelopment of Clive Booth Student Village in November 2021. Construction work for the redevelopment began in March 2022 and it is currently expected that the first new buildings will open their doors during the 2023-24 academic year.
The project is providing an increased number of high-quality rooms for students within the University’s estate, close to the Headington Campus. This will also help to reduce the number of students living in private rented accommodation and support efforts to manage local housing demand.
The University will ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum while work is taking place and the University will continue to engage with students, staff and the local community. Latest information on the redevelopment taking place can be found on the works updates webpage.
