University buys property on Jack Straw’s Lane

The University has acquired Cowley House at 32 Jack Straw’s Lane from St Hilda’s College.

The ground floor of the building is home to a University nursery, which will continue to operate. Above it are 16 residential units, which will be used as graduate accommodation from this autumn.

The deal reflects the University’s policy of preferring to own property rather than to lease it, and safeguards the future of the nursery, which is a valuable resource for employees.
