New building for the School of Economics
The School of Economics has plans to move to a new building, which will provide a stronger visual focus, identity and community for the School. In particular, space which is open to all the School’s students will for the first time allow its undergraduate students a physical presence within that community. The building will provide the School with a modern, identifiable home.
The building will house improved facilities for students and staff, such as social spaces, meeting rooms and an IT suite. Two floors of one wing will house shared teaching space and the rest of the building will be dedicated for the School’s use.
It is planned the building will be ready in time for the start of the 2019-20 academic year.
