THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL OFFICIALLY OPEN THE H B ALLEN CENTRE AT KEBLE COLLEGE, OXFORD

Thursday 3rd October 2019

The Duke of Cambridge will visit Oxford on Thursday 3rd October to officially open Keble College’s new graduate building, the H B Allen Centre. His Royal Highness will tour the centre and will meet graduates, academics and start-up companies that work out of the building.

Founded in 1870, Keble College is now one of the largest colleges at Oxford University, with over 840 students. The H B Allen Centre was built as part of Keble’s 150th Anniversary Campaign, with the aim of creating a new home for the college’s graduate community and new facilities to support inter-disciplinary research and collaboration. During the visit, the Duke will meet with representatives who were involved in the construction of the building.

The H B Allen Centre also provides workspaces for Oxford Sciences Innovation (OSI), and the Oxford Robotics Institute (ORI). During his tour of the centre, His Royal Highness will visit OSI’s Innovation Incubation space and meet some of the start-up companies working in the space, including a business which is using virtual reality to treat psychological disorders. The Duke will then meet ORI academics and view some of the robots that are being developed at the centre.

In addition to academic facilities, the H B Allen Centre also provides accommodation and living facilities for its graduate students. His Royal Highness will visit one of the building’s common rooms to meet a group of graduates who have been using the centre to hear about their experiences.
