St Antony’s College, Woodstock Road, 11.00am-3.00pm.

Visitors will be welcome to view three libraries at St Antony’s College, set in the very different and inspiring surroundings of a 19th-century former convent building and the brand new Investcorp Building, designed by Zaha Hadid.

College Library

Sensitively refurbished 18 years ago, the Library occupies the former chapel in the 19th-century convent building that formed the first home for St Antony’s College when it was founded. It provides a unique and beautiful place for students and Fellows of the College to study. Further details may be found here: http://www.sant.ox.ac.uk/current-members/college-library

Russian and Eurasian Studies Centre Library

A striking modern refurbishment has created a tranquil study and meeting space within the former convent building, with architectural and design features echoing the regional subject of the Library.

Middle East Centre Library

One of Oxford’s most modern libraries can be found within the new Investcorp Building designed by internationally renowned architect Zaha Hadid.
