A MULTI-MILLION pound project to deliver a new teaching and learning hub at the University of Warwick was unveiled to student ambassadors last week at an official opening ceremony.

Equipped with the latest technology to assist with teaching, the £20million Teaching and Learning building is a ‘building for all’ on campus which will provide a shared space for students in all departments to come together to teach, learn and assist.

The building is the first stage in a comprehensive redevelopment of the central part of the university’s campus.

Made of of a three storey glass facade opening, the front of the building opens into a spacious atrium with a curved roof structure spanning across the lecture theatres.

The centre of the building contains 500 and 250 seat lecture theatres together with a suite of seminar rooms – study areas can also open up onto outdoor areas.

Stuart Croft, vice chancellor at Warwick University, and a number of student ambassadors attended the ceremony, where the milestone was marked by the trowelling of a lecture theatre step.

Mr Croft said: “It’s inspiring to see the building take shape and progress seems to be made on a daily basis.

“The opportunities this new building brings for our students are fantastic.

“It’s a purpose built building for all on campus.

“Architecturally it’s outstanding, with cutting edge facilities to help with teaching, learning, academic study and our huge range of societies.

“I hope it will make a big difference to students, helping to emphasise the importance of teaching, along with research, at Warwick.”

Isaac Leigh, president of the students union said: “This new building is a brilliant development for students.

“It’s great news for Warwick students of today and tomorrow.”

Located on University Road, construction of the new building is due to finish in the new academic year.
