XR News in Oxford

Working alongside University College, Oxford X-Reality Hub created an immersive mobile VR app which transports users from all corners of the globe inside the College’s quadrangles and halls. This real-world solution gives users, including donors and prospective students, an inside glimpse of the College and of its emerging developments in North Oxford.

This is a clear example of how immersive technologies can be used, not only to create solutions to current issues, but also to usher organisations into the future.

Interested in learning more or exploring solutions? Contact the X-Reality Hub

Sample the app yourself through the video below. Take a 360° tour of key parts of University College and gain a glimpse of future developments in North Oxford. You can also download the app on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Walk through University College, Oxford and rediscover places ranging from the hall and chapel to architects’ drawings for the new development in North Oxford.
