MAJOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE CAMPUS

Over the past decade, we have invested almost £350 million in schemes to support world-class research and education and to provide an exceptional student experience. These have included the award-winning McClay Library, the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, a new home for the Queen's University Management School and the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute at Riddel Hall, new sports facilities in the PEC and at Upper Malone, and redevelopment of the Elms Village.

But we’re only half-way there! Over the next decade we will invest at least the same amount again, as we continue to enhance our role as a world-leading University, promoting global excellence and local impact. Click here to find out more.

On the Main Site, projects include a new centre for postgraduate students in the Lynn Library (completion 2015); a new home for the School of Law in the former Library Stack (completion 2016); and a new Social Hub for students and staff in the Peter Froggatt Centre (completion 2016).

Projects on the Health Sciences campus include the new Centre for Experimental Medicine (completion 2015); the rolling refurbishment of the Whitla Medical and the Pharmacy buildings (phased completion late September/October 2014); and the creation of new computer labs and general teaching rooms in the south-east wing of the MBC (completion September 2014).

On the Elmwood Avenue Site, a temporary building has been constructed at the rear of the Students’ Union to provide temporary computer lab and teaching accommodation for Computer Science. This is for a period of two years from September 2014 to allow redevelopment of the Bernard Crossland Building (BCB), subject to obtaining Planning Approval.  The scale and capacity of the existing BCB can no longer support a high quality student experience, address the growth in student numbers and expectations, or the new modes of teaching in Computer Science.

The Elmwood Learning and Teaching Centre (ELTC) has been converted into academic offices and academic support accommodation for Computer Science, although the ELTC lecture theatre will remain as a centrally booked facility.

On the DKB/Ashby Site, the rolling refurbishment of buildings to provide world-class teaching and research facilities and enhance the student experience is continuing, with upgrades to the DKB Chemistry and Chemical Engineering labs and workshops (completion August 2014); Ashby Lab Block (completion December 2014); the Northern Ireland Technology Centre (completion September 2014) and the Sonic Arts Research Centre (completion September 2014).
