Staff housing allocation policy: request for focus group volunteers

In line with the commitment to be transparent and keep staff at the centre of the development, a series of focus groups will be held in October to get feedback on the draft proposal.

The 60 to 90 minute focus groups are open to all interested members of the University, but the participation of members of staff who are most likely to benefit from the new staff housing (ie those who are currently living in rented accommodation) is particularly welcomed.

The focus groups will take place at 11.30am to 1pm on:

  • Tuesday 8 October at: Medical Sciences Teaching Area, South Parks Road OX1 3PL
  • Wednesday 9 October at: Big Data Institute, Old Road Campus OX3 7LF
  • Thursday 10 October at: The Malthouse, Tidmarsh Lane OX1 1NQ

If you would like to register your interest to participate, please email Deborah Steyl at:
