New Mathematical Institute Building on the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter
Mathematics plays a pivotal role in the progress of society and its continued growth relies on the exchange and development of research ideas, the encouragement and teaching of the next generation of mathematical thinkers, and outreach to the public and schools. Mathematics at Oxford has seen phenomenal growth and success over the past 10 years and to accommodate further success, the University is now establishing a new Mathematical Institute on the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter at a cost of £72M. This new Institute will form the intellectual and physical environment in which mathematical culture will continue to thrive and in which teaching and research will enrich each other.
World-renowned architects Rafael Viñoly have been retained by the University to work on the design for the new Institute. The architects are working closely with English Heritage to ensure that the development complements and enhances its historic setting.

We are currently seeking further support to complete our vision for the development of Mathematics at Oxford. In recognition of significant benefactions to the Institute, there is a range of naming opportunities available to acknowledge the impact that such generosity will have upon the growth of mathematics and the opportunities that it will afford for the large number of students, faculty and visitors who will benefit from this development.
