Major refurbishment complete

The £1m smart refurbishment of Botany House has created a newly transformed space for the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science.

This new facility provides an inspired environment for Postgraduates and teaching staff to further enhance the School’s research capabilities.

Louise Hawksworth, School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science Manager said:

“The refurbishment of Botany House is a huge step for the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science. It means we have been able to rethink how we use our accommodation, including existing space in Michael Sadler and Baines Wing, to allow for improved facilities for our staff, undergraduate and postgraduate students, and visitors. Up until now, the School has been spread out over seven buildings, but now it feels like PRHS has a home right in the heart of campus.”

The school is the only one of its kind enabling creative and critical future thinkers in higher education. The new site will provide a dedicated space for students to continue exploring philosophy, religion, and history of science in unparalleled depth and breadth.
