The Newlyn Building, on Mount Preston Street, provides central teaching space, specifically four flat-floor teaching rooms with a capacity for 100 people and four teaching rooms each with a capacity for 36 people.

Occupation of the building takes place from this month, with the Language Centre using the space for pre-sessional courses over the summer and teaching commencing in October.

Nick Scott, the Academic Lead for the £75 Million LUBS and Law Transformation programme which includes the Newlyn Building and other associated projects commented:

“We will continue to attract a high-quality, internationally diverse body of students and deliver an exceptional learning experience, comparable with other leading Schools, through providing an environment that supports students and staff to achieve their full potential, whilst maintaining our ability to enhance, innovate and adapt student education practices. The Newlyn Building is just one part of our programme that will enable us to achieve this vision.

Tamsin Barrow, Facilities Manager, Leeds University Business School added: “The Newlyn Building will provide additional Business School Teaching space. It is located closer to Western Campus which means our students have easy access to the Faculty and related spaces. We are continuing to work with Estates on our Faculty Strategy to create high quality facilities for our students to use.”

Following the completion of the Newlyn Building, Stage three of the LUBS investment project, will commence in November, with the construction of a new multi-storey teaching facility on Cloberry Street. It will be shared by LUBS, the School of Law and Central Teaching Space.  Prominent features of the building will include a new Trading Room, lecture theatres, flexible teaching areas and Behavioural Laboratories to provide more flexible and innovative ways of teaching.
