The college is delighted to announce that the plans for a major building project within Trinity’s grounds have been approved by the Oxford City Council Planning Committee.
The new accommodation is designed to serve the college’s needs for the foreseeable future. It includes five purpose-built teaching rooms, a lecture theatre, additional library and study accommodation with enhanced wheelchair access to the existing college library, forty-six study bedrooms, a community café, and a central administrative hub.
The lecture theatre will provide a public platform to enable our world-leading academics to share their work with the wider public, including local school students. The additional study bedrooms will enable the college to house up to fifty graduate students on site, benefitting the whole academic community while, at the same time, relieving some of the pressure on Oxford’s private rental accommodation market.
Work on the building, which is designed by Hugh Petter of ADAM Architecture, will begin in July 2019 and is scheduled for completion by the start of Michaelmas term 2021.
We will, of course, continue to publish updates on the progress of the building. In the meantime, the plans can be viewed by clicking here.
