University College,
North Oxford

Our development in North Oxford represents the most significant expansion of the College’s footprint since the 18th century.

Working together we can deliver an exceptional model of environmentally responsible planning and construction that will result in a second fully-fledged collegiate community. As ever, Univ is proud to be pushing the boundaries of what is thought possible for an Oxford college. We need your help to make this happen – please join us on this journey…

“It is creating a social world, which is an extraordinary enjoyable task for an architect: to project this into the future and think about how people will be living.”

Níall McLaughlin, Architect

A message from
Baroness Amos
Master of University College

“This project speaks to three of Univ’s core strengths-continuity, community and change. It looks forward in a way which builds on Univ’s history whilst seeking to transform its future. I am delighted to support it and hope that you will too.”

A message from
Sir Ivor Crewe
Master of University College 2008-2020

“We are embarking on a transformational project – the greatest expansion of the College since the construction of the Main Quad in the 17th century and the creation of a new way of college living adapted for the 21st century. It is the critical next chapter in Univ’s history. Now, as before, we turn to the College’s tradition of generous benefactions to realise our ambitions.”

“We can just focus on our studies; safe in the knowledge that we’ll be looked after by College, and knowing that we can just go to College with any concerns we have about accommodation. I’m really grateful for that.”

Lucy Walsh (2018, History and Politics)

“We are bringing together people from so many different ends of life. We have a home for elderly people, there’ll be a nursery, we have students, academics, and all those people are going to interact with each other. I think everyone is going to benefit hugely from that.”

Professor Caroline Terquem, Fellow
