Abingdon and Witney College is a further education college based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 2001 after the mergers of Abingdon College and West Oxfordshire College.[1] The school offers teaching and training to young people, adults and businesses.[1]

Witney Rebuild[edit]

Starting from September 2008, the Witney campus was due to be rebuilt with final approval expected in December 2008. To prepare for this, a temporary "learning village" was built consisting of 57 temporary cabins into which all 600 full-time students, plus staff were moved into at a cost of £44,000 a month. However, in early March 2009, the LSC who were due to fund the rebuild announced that the project had been put on hold indefinitely, along with 78 other similar schemes around the country following the economic downturn.[citation needed]

Abingdon Build[edit]

In Easter 2013 Abingdon Campus started a building project for an engineering building. In January 2014 the campus started renovations, which are expected to finish by April 2014 and open in early May.[2]
