• Colonnade

    The Colonnade will provide a new retail area for the campus and be a new cosmopolitan public space for Headington, with shops and amenities for the local community as well as the University.

    It will play centre stage when it comes to the public face of Oxford Brookes University in Headington. The aged steel ribbon, flowing from the Colonnade into the John Henry Brookes Building, will bring the buildings together, complement the public art on the Piazza and pull together local communities.

    Businesses in the Colonnade

    The colonnade will house:

    • Blackwell's book shop with café
    • convenience store selling a range of groceries and freshly baked products
    • Amazon Lockers - a pick up point for Amazon products
    • Santander bank
    • Studental dentist
    • doctor's surgery
    • osteopathy clinic.

    Construction is set to finish in the summer of 2014, with businesses opening once interior and exterior fitters have readied their premises for use (expected late 2014).
