13. Meeting Strategic Objectives VIII: Space

The buildings and facilities at OUCS are currently running to capacity. Yet increasingly we are being asked to house major IT projects or initiatives (including staff and hardware). This has meant that our existing facilities, notably our machine room and office space, are overstretched.

Specifically therefore, over the next five years OUCS plans to:

  • Identify new opportunities to solve the accommodation problem and relieve pressure on the machine room.
  • Fund the refurbishment of one lecture room and set up a Media Centre. Target date: 08-9. Estimated cost: £700k.
  • Fund the development of, and access to, the OUCS basements. Target date: 09. Estimated cost: £500k.
