Following the closure of the Tinbergen Building in February, a University-wide steering group was asked to explore options for the building and recommend a long-term solution. At the beginning of July, the group unanimously recommended the demolition and replacement of the Tinbergen Building with a new facility.
Support for the creation of a new home for Experimental Psychology on a redeveloped Tinbergen site is a strong expression of the University’s commitment to sustain two world-class departments through this challenging time.
In addition, Oxford City Council’s planning committee has resolved to approve planning applications for a modular building at the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter (ROQ) site. One two-storey modular building will go on the Walton Street side of the ROQ site and will house research and administration for the Department of Experimental Psychology (EP).
