About the Project

The Radcliffe Science Library (RSL) building is located on the corner of Parks Road and South Parks Road in the Oxford University Science Area, which is also within the city’s Central Conservation Area.The RSL site is being redeveloped to create modern library facilities open to all Bodleian readers; fresh spaces for communal dining, collaboration, exhibitions and public events; and a museums collections centre to facilitate collections-based teaching, research and engagement, and which will also provide high-quality storage for the University collections. In addition, the new graduate society, known as Parks College, will be integrated into these refurbishment plans for the building, creating a new research and social community for graduate students and academic fellows of Parks College.
