Scope and Content

Minutes of the Owens Park Policy Committee, known as the Owens Park Committee from 1982. The Committee was set up in 1973, as a committee of Council. It was chaired by a senior academic, and members included the Senior Tutor at the Park and a student representative of the Owens Park Association. The committee had oversight for the running of the Park residential complex, including tutoring arrangements. The Committee appears to have stopped being a sessional committee in late 1996, although it continued to meet after this date.

Owens Park is a large student residential complex in the Fallowfield area. It opened in 1964, and was the University's first mixed residential accommodation. Owens Park was based on a "student village" concept, and includes the Owens Park Tower and a series of "student houses" accommodating up to 50 individuals.
