The Oculus Building opens

As of Monday 17 October 2016, our new flagship teaching and learning building, The Oculus, is open and in full use by our campus community. Along with teaching and learning, academic and student-run events will be the priority here, and we look forward to seeing how our campus community makes creative use of this new facility.

Our Estates team managed the Oculus construction project from beginning to end and you can read more about the building itself on the Estates website:
