Mathematical Institute Room Booking

Booking Policy Summary


The Andrew Wiles Building is an iconic building in Oxford, home to Oxford Mathematics and the research and teaching activity of the Department.  In addition, the Department wishes to make best use of the potential of the Building for reaching out to a variety of external audiences, and for generating revenue which is vital in underpinning the Department’s academic endeavour.  The Department will continue to make best use of the Andrew Wiles Building in this way, whilst managing this alongside its own academic demands on the building and obligations to the wider University. 

Bookings must also comply with the university code of practice on meetings and events
