The Oculus made it through to the finals of 2017's Project of the Year Awards, run by Construction News. Our building was up against competitors as varied as an airport, a Grade-1 listed market and a Police custody suite in the £10 - £20 million category of this year's awards.
The Oculus, which opened in autumn 2016, features a 500 seat lecture theatre (the largest on campus), 12 top-quality, flexible teaching spaces and lots of well-used social learning spaces for our students. It was officially opened by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, who visited the campus on Thursday 30 March and unveiled a plaque in the building.
