Experience Oxford's New Place

We’re in a city for the curious, a home to the inventive, a place never afraid to welcome the challengers and disruptors, the heroes and heretics.

A city with a history of firsts, connecting the world’s greatest minds where the only constant is accelerating change.

Centre of Academic Excellence

For centuries, Oxford has provided a world-class home for research and creation.

It’s home to both the University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University, and the John Radcliffe Hospital, which is part of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, a world-renowned centre of clinical excellence and one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the UK.

For the seventh consecutive year running, the University of Oxford has been ranked the World’s Best University 2023 by Times Higher Education.

Oxford North will support discovery for years to come as an exciting extension to one of the world’s most famous cities.
