Students and staff celebrate the opening of London Met’s Roding building
Students and staff came together on 20 March in celebration of the opening of London Met’s new Roding building.
Roding comprises three floors of state-of-the-art learning and teaching spaces transforming what was previously used as administrative offices into a vibrant £7.8m social learning hub. Bond Bryan Architects and project management company Overbury plc worked with students and staff on the project.
Roding hosts 11 top-of-the-range classrooms installed with cutting-edge technology, a variety of study commons spaces and the new Highbury Canteen.
Mark Boansi, London Met Students’ Union President-elect, said: “We are so excited about the opening of the new Roding building.
“The facilities really are world-class in design and technology and we know that Roding will enhance and transform the learning experience for the students of London Met.”
Professor John Raftery, London Met’s Vice-Chancellor, said: “We are pleased to open and start using our new Roding building, which has been designed to make sure our students’ learning experience is of the highest quality. We know that everyone learns in different ways and the technology we’ve installed will reflect the diversity among our students.
“We are committed to continuing to invest in our campus and in the technology our students require to improve their outcomes and therefore transform their lives. It’s what London Met’s Strategic Plan aims to do.”
The creation of the facility takes place as part of London Met’s multimillion pound One Campus, One Community project.
