A new home for SMSAS

SMSAS will be moving to the new Sibson building in 2017... a new home that expresses our identity and character.


Construction of the Sibson building, named after the University's third Vice-Chancellor, began in January 2015. The building will be jointly occupied with Kent Business School (KBS).

Sibson will be a vibrant new campus destination bringing together students, researchers, academics, and professional services staff from both schools. The video (right) gives an impression of the vision for the building (duration 3m 30s)

Prior to work beginning on site the University consulted landscape and ecology specialists in order to minimise ecological impact in the woodland environment. New woodland and habitats will be created on University land nearby.

By April 2016 the building was at its full height and a topping-out ceremony was held. Professor Peter Hydon represented SMSAS (photograph, right). More about the ceremony
