Building Our Future

The University of Oxford's estate accommodates the day-to-day teaching, learning, research and administrative activities of the central University.  It includes some of the oldest and finest buildings in the city as well as showcasing much newer, state-of-the-art architecture.

The land and buildings owned by the 38 colleges and six permanent private halls are not part of the University estate, because colleges are self-governing and financially-independent institutions. 

Together, the central university and the colleges make up the collegiate university.

The University estate is managed by the Estates Services department.

For more information about colleges and permanent private halls, please visit their individual websites .
