Lecture theatres and rooms
One of the lecture theatres is the largest on campus with 500 seats, a spectacular timber roof and excellent charging point facilities for laptops and other devices. Of the 4 teaching rooms on the ground floor, 3 open out into the landscaped area outside the building, providing a unique experience for those studying.
In the central atrium you’ll find a four-screen video wall. We use this for a range of art displays, timetables of upcoming activity in the building and live-streams of lectures and other events in the main lecture theatres. There are high-tech features elsewhere in the building, with electronic screens outside each room showing availability and interactive digital boards to help with wayfinding.
The building is exemplary in its environmental credentials. Tests indicate that it will perform well above our already high standards for sustainability in new buildings. We’ve put a great deal of time and effort into landscaping the area around the building too, aiming to create beautiful outdoor spaces to complement those indoors.
