Changes to the Old Library, Radcliffe Camera (Upper & Lower Camera)

3 September 2012

Listed Building Consent for improvements to the Old Library and Radcliffe Camera has now been granted and work in the Old Library and the Upper Camera will now proceed with a target completion date of 28 September 2012.

Changes to the Lower Camera entrance are still subject to consultation, which runs through Michaelmas Term as previously announced. Therefore there will be no changes to the Lower Camera during Michaelmas Term.

Disabled access 

Accessibility to services in the Old Library can now be implemented before Michaelmas Term and details will be announced shortly.  No improvements to accessibility in the Lower Camera will be made until consultation is complete and will be driven by the outcome of the consultation.  


Additional security arrangements will be temporarily put in place in the Radcliffe Camera until the proposed new configuration, if approved, can provide a long-term and robust answer.
