The Hub

The Hub, Kellogg College’s Common Room and café, is Oxford University’s first Passivhaus certified building. The Passivhaus ‘green’ standard is supported by the Hub Café’s eco-friendly philosophy. You can read more about The Hub’s ‘green’ credentials, and view a timelapse video of its construction, on our page The Hub’s Ethos.
