About Jesus College/
Cheng Kar Shun Digital Hub


Welcome to the Cheng Kar Shun Digital Hub at Jesus College

The Digital Hub is an exciting new physical and virtual space in the centre of Oxford, bringing together the brightest minds and the curious. 

Through a wide range of interactive events, talks, workshops and performances led by our researchers and collaborators, we aim to demystify the digital age, help you to learn new digital skills and shine a light on how advances in digital technologies are transforming our understanding of the world around us.

The Hub also champions the power of collective endeavour by enabling our academics at all stages of their career to study using innovative digital tools and methodologies, and to work in collaboration across disciplines, institutes and time zones on research that has a global impact.

Transforming how we see and understand the world in the digital age

Our unique Digital Hub programmes will include events that investigate the past using the latest digital technologies, explore what it means to be human in today’s digital world, and enable you to step in to the future with activities on topics as diverse as climate change, AI and healthcare. Our three core themes are:

  • REDISCOVERING THE PAST 

  • QUESTIONING THE PRESENT 

  • DEFINING THE FUTURE 

The Digital Hub public events programme will launch in the autumn of 2022. 


At the heart of a new building for a forward-facing College

The Digital Hub is located in Jesus College’s new Cheng Yu Tung Building. Combining new graduate accommodation, indoor and outdoor communal spaces, state-of-the-art teaching facilities and the latest digital technologies, this £40m innovative development will enrich learning for our students, enhance the world-leading academic research of our Fellows, and widen our reach to the general public.

Our team

The Digital Hub programme is being developed and delivered by the Fellows, students and staff of Jesus College, in collaboration with a wide range of partners across the University of Oxford, the city and beyond.

This work is led by Dr Janina Schupp, the SOUTHWORKS Career Development Fellow for the Digital Hub. Our Digital Hub Student Committee, comprising both undergraduate and graduate students, is also deeply involved in creating and delivering Hub events for a wide range of audiences.
