The proposed H. B. Allen Centre
H B Allen Centre will house 230 graduate students
Keble College has received its largest ever donation to fund a major new development. Thanks to a £25 million capital grant from the H B Allen Charitable Trust the college will push ahead with the long-planned redevelopment of the Acland site. The H B Allen Centre will house 230 graduate students and will include a 120 seat lecture theatre, seminar rooms, exhibition space, a cafe, gym and a twenty-four bedroom "research hotel" for visiting academics. The aim is to open the new development in October 2018.
