Our new building brings healthcare back to the former Radcliffe Infirmary Outpatients' Wing in central Oxford, heralding a new era for this historic site.

The Radcliffe Observatory Quarter (ROQ), which houses the former Radcliffe Infirmary, is one of the most significant development projects the University of Oxford has undertaken for more than a century.  

In March 2016, the hospital's former outpatients’ building became the new home for primary care health sciences, renewing a health presence in the building into the 21st century. This development provides the very best facilities to support our vital research and teaching, with a wide range of different spaces to suit the many ways we work.

The building has been refitted with innovations to meet the challenge of climate change, and has a BRAEEM 2008 rating of "Very Good".

Our postgraduate student centre is based a short walk across the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter in the Gibson Building.
