Use the Estates Services Library

The library contains original records about the University estate going back hundreds of years, including photographs and construction records.  Most of these unique, paper records cannot be replaced which is why there are strict procedures for using the library.

In the first instance, complete the information request form – click on the download button on the right – to tell us about the information you need.  If possible we will scan the information and deliver it to you by email or via OxFile, the University’s web-based service for the exchange of large files. We aim to do this within five working days.

You can also visit the Estates Services Library in person at the Examination Schools in the High Street, Oxford. You will need an appointment to visit on Monday to Wednesday only between 9am and 5pm. Contact to arrange one.

If you want to remove any materials you will need permission from library staff, or we can usually provide a scan or photocopy.

To find out more about using the library, click the download button on the right or contact us for advice.
