  • OUR VISION

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

    We’re working hard to create spaces to inspire and currently implementing a ten-year, £220 million programme of investment across our estate. We’ll see largescale refurbishment to many of our buildings as well as some new build at our Headington and Harcourt Hill campuses. Part of this also sees us moving away from our Wheatley Campus by 2021/22, focusing our investment on high quality, sustainable campuses and supporting us in providing an excellent student and staff experience.

    In November 2016 we announced our vision for our Oxford campuses, which will see a reconfiguring of activity across our Headington and Harcourt Hill campuses as we move away from Wheatley.

    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.

    Below, you can find out more about what we’re doing on each campus.

    Across our campuses...

    Harcourt Hill
    In November 2016 we announced our vision for our Oxford campuses, which includes a reconfiguration of the academic activity taking place at Headington and Harcourt Hill. This will bring together subject departments closely aligned, make the best use of our sports facilities and create a more vibrant community at Harcourt Hill.

    We will be refurbishing most buildings on the campus, including our sports facilities, and are seeking to create some new build to support this activity.

    Headington
    We’re currently undergoing extensive
    refurbishments of the Clerici and Sinclair Headington Campus buildings, creating new teaching, study and lab spaces, as well as a new home for the Oxford Brookes Business School. Much of this will be completed in 2017; find out more on the current projects page.

    In November 2016 we announced our vision for our Oxford campuses, which includes a reconfiguration of the academic activity taking place at Headington and Harcourt Hill. Headington will be the home of those academic departments moving from the Wheatley Campus and there will be some new build to provide the specialist facilities associated with these courses.

    Swindon
    We’ve opened a new campus in Swindon to support our flourishing healthcare teaching provision. The Joel Joffe Building, named in honour of Lord Joffe, prominent human rights lawyer and long-term Swindon resident, contains brand new clinical skills suites and mock hospital wards to ensure our students get a realistic training experience.

    Wheatley
    As part of the University estates investment plan, all teaching, research and support activity will be moving from the Wheatley Campus by 2021/22. The Oxford Brookes Business School will be moving from the campus into the newly refurbished Clerici building in Headington (scheduled for summer 2017). The remaining academic activity currently based at Wheatley will move to Headington by 2021/22, with some new build taking place there in advance of this move.

    Oxford Brookes is currently exploring options for the sale of the campus once it has been vacated.
