Electrical substation works: 21 September 2019 – May 2020

Date of disruption: from 21 September 2019 – May 2020

We are carrying out a significant project to waterproof a major electrical substation that provides power to the campus.

The £2m improvements works are part of the University’s aim to update the electrical infrastructure that supports campus facilities and buildings.

This means the pathways around Charles Morris Residences and the School of Earth and Environment will be closed for eight months.

Effects of these works: There will be no access to the pathways around Charles Morris Residences and the School of Earth and Environment.

For staff and students this will mean: 

  • An alternate accessible route will be in place through Charles Morris Residences and Chancellors Court.

Creating inspiring and engaging study spaces

The Design Office has recently completed the Maurice Keyworth refurbishment project. 

They worked with the Business School to create an inspiring and engaging study space for students to work in a variety of different ways. The space has been divided into zones using furniture solutions that encourage collaborative group work as well as quiet areas for individual study and contemplation.
