Building is expected to start next year
Planning permission for two new buildings at Oxford University has been approved.
A mathematical institute, humanities building and library will be built on the site of the former Radcliffe Infirmary.
The university said the scheme, costing about £160m, would bring together facilities currently scattered across the city.
Building is expected to get under way next year, a spokesperson added.
Planning approval was given by Oxford city councillors on Thursday.
Professor Anthony Monaco, who chairs the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter Board, said: "The university is delighted that planning permission has been granted for these two new buildings.
"These projects form the core of our vision for this site, offering state-of-the-art facilities for research and teaching that will greatly benefit faculty and students."
The Radcliffe Infirmary site was bought by the university in 2003 for £40m after medical services moved to new facilities at the John Radcliffe and Churchill Hospitals.
