Major Development of the Campus

Projects include a new world-class centre for postgraduate and international 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).

The process of investing £350m in schemes across the campus to support research and education, and provide a world-class experience for all our students also includes the new Centre for Experimental Medicine (completion 2015) on the Health Sciences Campus. Other projects include further refurbishment of the Whitla Medical and the Pharmacy buildings (completion late summer 2014) and the creation of new computer labs and general teaching rooms in the south-east wing of the MBC (completion late summer 2014).

On the Elmwood Avenue Site, a temporary building is being constructed at the rear of the Students’ Union to provide temporary computer lab and teaching accommodation for Computer Science from September 2014 for two years 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) is being 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 Ashby/DKB 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).
