Chancellor's Building Officially Open

Opening-of-the-Chancellors-BuildingThe School of Construction Management and Engineering's new home, the Chancellor's Building, is now officially open.

Our new Chancellor Lord William Waldegrave cut the ribbon on 9th February 2017 officially opening the building. He was joined by VC Sir David Bell and senior staff from across the School. Guests were taken on a tour of the new facilities, which included Lord Waldegrave experiencing virtual reality and a tour of a Roman town in the School's cutting-edge visualisation lab.

This new £8.4 million accommodation provides students and staff with a versatile and stimulating teaching space, packed with specialist equipment and modern fittings. It is located on Chancellor's Way, Whiteknights Campus.

Spanning two floors, the Chancellor's Building provides 14 teaching rooms varying from 24-150 seats, two teaching/research labs, a PC lab, along with social break out spaces. The layout of the building has been designed to further encourage the School's community environment, with academic offices situated around these social areas. The building also offers more specialist features, including a dedicated resource centre, a new Building Information Modelling (BIM) lounge and an immersive virtual reality 'CAVE' that will enable students to interact with 3D digitised environments.

This purpose-built temporary accommodation has been designed to house the School of Construction Management and Engineering, while the University makes significant investment into redeveloping and transforming the URS building.
