The Dickson Poon University of Oxford China Centre Building

The Dickson Poon University of Oxford China Centre Building is an exciting new building owned by St Hugh's.  The total cost of the building is £21m, of which almost £20m has already been raised from some extremely generous donations from benefactors.  Most notable amongst these is the Hong Kong philanthropist, Mr Dickson Poon CBE, who kindly donated £10m towards the cost of the building.

This building will, for the first time, bring together academics drawn from across a range of disciplines, who have in common research and teaching interests related to China.  The building will also provide 63 en-suite student bedrooms, a 100 seat lecture theatre, a 200 seat dining area and a range of conference and seminar facilities.  It will also contain a dedicated library with study carrels and a reading room, which will provide a permanent home for books from the Bodleian Library's China Collection.
