Consultation to open on new teaching and learning space

Plans for three floors of new teaching and social spaces to be shared.
Date: 21 October 2016

London Met’s One Campus, One Community (OCOC) project is quickly gaining momentum, with the successful relocation of areas of The Cass to Calcutta House and work soon to begin at Holloway campus.

The University is now about to launch a consultation on the creation of new teaching and learning spaces in C Block – an area of the Holloway Campus currently used as administrative offices for the Estates and Information Technology Services.

The exciting development will see the creation of three floors of brand new teaching and learning spaces, with high spec classrooms kitted out with the latest technology.

The new learning facilities will be available for use in January 2018.  

What will C Block offer?

The current proposal is for the creation of 11 new teaching rooms of differing capacities to accommodate a wide range of courses and methods of delivery. This space will be accessible and usable by all the University’s Schools.

The project will deliver modern, flexible rooms and social spaces where staff and students will be able to learn, work, relax, network and socialise. These new facilities will enhance the student experience, providing a world-class environment for compelling teaching and learning experiences.

With a focus on spatial arrangement, impact and function, the C Block project will ensure that these brand new spaces are:

  • welcoming and readily accessible for all lecturers and students
  • adaptable, easily and quickly reconfigurable for a range of teaching and learning activities
  • world-class in design and technology to ensure teaching and learning excellence in a top-quality environment

Consultation

Feedback received from staff and students during our Strategic Plan consultations highlighted a need for the transformation of the learning experience and design features, which for our stakeholders mattered most in ensuring a high-quality teaching environment.

With this in mind, C Block will be refurbished inside and out to create exciting, top quality new spaces fitted out with the latest teaching technology.

Visual concepts for C Block will soon be published on the OCOC website, as well as in the Google+ community, where stakeholders are invited to discuss and debate the proposals. Views can also be captured by emailing onecampus@londonmet.ac.uk

Please do check the One Campus, One Community website regularly for updates about the project. This resource is the key point of knowledge for staff and students. The Google+ community offers a forum of discussion and debate, where all friends of London Met are welcome to share their views on the project’s proposals.
