Improving College Facilities
As part of our ongoing commitment to improve College facilities for our students, we submitted a Planning Application to fully refurbish and extend our existing buildings at Fulford House (77-83 Iffley Road); 85 & 87 Iffley Road; and Stockmore House (46 Stockmore Street), to provide a controlled single entrance to the new combined site currently known as the Iffley Road Centre. We are very pleased that planning permission was granted and that work on the Iffley Road Centre will begin on site in June 2017. This project will increase the number of student bedrooms available to the College. It will also ensure that all accommodation is of the high standard that we want our students to enjoy.
We were also very happy to be granted planning permission for a temporary gym site on the footprint of an existing dilapidated Green House within the College's main site. Our on-site gym has been funded by a gift from a generous donor. Building work on this began in Hilary Term and the Stone Family Gym officially opened on 3 March 2017. It will be open for use by members of St Hilda's College from Trinity Term 2017. Take a look at how the project evolved here.
