Temporary closure of Keble Gates

Work is starting on 1 March to remove the Keble Gates from their current location leading into the University Parks from Parks Road. During the work, the entrance will be closed, starting at 9am on Wednesday 1 March until the morning of Saturday 3 March, when it will open again as normal.

During this closure access from Parks Road should be via the North Lodge Gate entrance. For visitors walking through the Parks there is a diversion from South Walk to North Lodge Gate along West Walk, passing the new Ginkgo Gates installation where work is also underway.

The Keble Gates are being moved a short distance to create a new entrance point leading into the Parks from the newly-constructed Beecroft Building. In due course the current gateway will be replaced with fencing, borders and trees.

Further short-term closures will be needed to complete the full programme of works, and further information will be provided ahead of these.

Any enquiries should be directed to university.parks@admin.ox.ac.uk.
