The project is part of a wider ongoing University ‘Common Spaces’ initiative designed to ensure its physical spaces foster the campus’s intellectual, cultural and social experience.
The project is expected to include an indoor multi-purpose gathering space for the whole university community including spaces for exhibitions, retail, food service, performances, study and events, as well as providing welcome and orientation for visitors and the public.
Construction is scheduled to commence in 2016.
