GENERAL NOTICES

The Radcliffe Observatory Quarter: Phase 2

Notice of public exhibition

The University has recently completed a Masterplan which sets out a vision for the redevelopment of the former Radcliffe Infirmary site for new academic research and teaching buildings. The completion of the Masterplan represents a key milestone in the redevelopment of the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter. The University is now seeking detailed planning permission for the second phase of the Masterplan: two new buildings to house the Humanities Division and Library, and the Mathematics Institute. In advance of submitting planning applications to Oxford City Council, the University is consulting residents, stakeholders, staff and students on the proposals.

Members of the University and members of the public are accordingly invited to an exhibition of the proposals, to be held in St Luke's Chapel, Radcliffe Infirmary, Woodstock Road, on Thursday, 15 October, and Friday, 16 October, 2–7.30 p.m. Members of the Project Team will attend to answer questions.


Launch of Mobile Web Site

From Monday, 5 October, a new mobile Web site has been available for Oxford staff and students to access via any Web-capable mobile phone. This service will include a contact search function, which is extremely popular on the University's Web site; a library search function, including finding the nearest available copy of the book being searched for; comprehensive travel information; local maps, including University buildings; local weather forecasts, and direct access to Oxford podcasts. The travel information will include access to local traffic webcams, council authorised taxi firms, and real time bus information.

Oxford is one of the the first universities in the UK to offer such a service.

The service will be developed over time to include automatic aggregation and display of relevant Oxford news feeds, access to selected Weblearn tools, and much more.

The service may be accessed, from a mobile phone's Web browser, at http://m.ox.ac.uk.

Enquiries may be directed to mobileoxford@oucs.ox.ac.uk.
