Walton Hall

The Open University
Walton Hall
Milton Keynes


The Walton Hall Campus is approximately 111 acres (or 45 hectares) in size. The land and the Walton Hall Building was originally leased from Milton Keynes Development Corporation from 1 September 1969 but subsequently purchased by the University during the 1990’s.

The Walton Hall building is a late 17th Century manor house with medieval origins, which was extended in the 18th Century. The front section was added in 1830.  It is a Grade II listed building.

East Campus

East Campus is just over 7 acres (or almost 3 hectares) in size. It consists of three buildings constructed in 1991 as a speculative office development by Milton Keynes Development Corporation.  It was subsequently let to De Montfort University and adapted to educational use. The University completed the freehold purchase in April 2003. It is now occupied by Academic Services.
