Our new home

A new home for STEM at Warwick

Our ambitious plans for a new Science Precinct at Warwick are all about reimagining the way we deliver discovery-led and translational scientific research in a data-driven era, and inspiring current and future generations of scientists and engineers to work and study here. It's an ambitious project but we’re always ready to rise to a challenge at Warwick, and we know we'll need a dynamic new home for STEM, filled with the culture, spaces and tools required to break new ground and bring together a more diverse and representative group of future leaders. Keep an eye on our plans and progress and watch this space for more information on how to get involved, share your thoughts, support our ambitions and find out more.

The Emerging Development Framework illustrates how key aspects of the Science Precinct fit together to make the most of the available space and maximise benefits for the whole University.

As we move through the next stage of design, our developing plans will ensure the Science Precinct:

  • Delivers state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure that will create an ideal environment for creativity, innovation and ground-breaking scientific endeavour and be flexible enough to grow with us to help meet future needs

  • Provides optimal spaces for research, work, teaching and study for our Science, Engineering and Medicine Faculty and departments from across the university

  • Places STEM right at the heart of our vibrant campus and community

  • Brings tangible benefits to all our staff and students as well as the local community

  • Facilitates the development of exciting partnership opportunities with a wide range of regional, national and global communities and organisations

  • Inspires the next generation of scientists to choose to get involved, explore, discover and feel empowered to create a better world

Building a new Science Precinct underlines our long-term commitment to transform the way we think about and deliver STEM at Warwick. Our first new building will provide a home for all things education: flexible spaces that allow for new and innovative approaches and “learning by doing”. And alongside our new teaching spaces, we’ll put STEM on display to inspire and build collaborations with our local and regional communities through a dedicated Public Engagement Hub.

The vision for the Hub includes science labs and classrooms, run by field specialists in the STEM departments and dedicated public engagement professionals, offering events linked to the curriculum at all key-stages; a space which can engage local families, by inspiring interest in science through hands-on exhibitions; and a space which connects the local community directly with the research being done at Warwick.
