Peking University is the highest ranking university in China, based in Beijing and Shenzhen. PHBS UK’s vision is to create a world-class environment for education that will attract the highest calibre students and promote business learning and exchange between the UK and China. The new campus will support this by providing state of the art research and teaching space and support facilities.

Foxcombe Hall benefits from a quiet, rural setting that specifically suits postgraduate study. It also benefits from its proximity to Oxford and its colleges and universities, as well as economic centres and its position within the Oxford-Cambridge Arc. The emerging proposals have been carefully and sensitively designed taking into consideration the site’s character and surrounding area, to enhance and complement these areas while providing a considered and smart use of the current buildings on-site.

Our ambition is to provide modern study, living and work space, in sustainable buildings that will last for generations to come.

MICA designs extend the existing campus adding new facilities net totalling:

–2,700m2 of additional internal space.

–120 seat dining hall and multi-functional cafe

–72 en-suite bedrooms (single and multiple occupancy rooms)

–200 seat Lecture Hall and performance space and breakout spaces

–Campus library

–New teaching, study and individual teaching space

–Social learning, gym and well-being facilities- New landscape, routes, and communal outdoor rooms

The new buildings frame new courts, define routes and give access to new landscape paths across the campus. In part the proposals masking the appearance of previous additions to the existing campus, whilst adding significant new accommodation on a high-profile site.

The scheme is currently at Planning Consultation Stage with planning application submitted Autumn 2020.
