All members of the University and the general public are welcome at Oxford University’s first Passivhaus certified building.
Housing both our Common Room and the Hub Café, the Passivhaus ‘green’ standard is supported by the College’s eco-friendly philosophy. The majority of the packaging used is compostable; our coffee is from the local coffee company, Jericho Coffee Traders, who support coffee growing farms, charities and cooperatives in Africa and South America; our ingredients are sourced locally, where possible; and we use biodegradable packaging for our products.
The Hub is open to all and can be booked as a venue for private parties, lectures and concerts. Visit our Venue Hire pages for more information.
