Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of 牛津大学, with Sir John Kingman, Chairman of 法律 & General
Through the joint venture, 法律 & General (L&G) are providing up to £4 billion of funding to deliver a series of projects with the aim of providing approximately 1,000 subsidised homes for rent by University and college staff, around 1,000 additional units of graduate student accommodation and expansion of our existing innovation facilities. The partnership means that the University can move forward with a cohesive plan to meet housing and research development needs that will also bring benefits to the city.
The projects will be developed initially by 牛津大学 Development Limited (OUD), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the joint venture company established by the University and L&G Group. OUD will design each project in line with the University’s requirements, consult with the local community and statutory authorities, apply for planning permission and manage the construction tender process. Once planning permission has been granted, the project will be completed by a company wholly-owned by L&G in return for rental income from the site for a defined number of years.
