WADHAM College held a ‘topping out’ ceremony to mark the half-way stage for new student accommodation in Oxford.

Work is progressing well at the Dorothy Wadham Building in Iffley Road and the ceremony took place on Thursday.

Construction of the 135-bedroom development, which will accommodate second-year students, began in October 2017 and is due for completion in October 2019.

The building, currently being constructed by Gilbert-Ash, is designed to blend with other buildings in the area.
