Early concepts for new Islington campus go on display

Staff, students and members of the public are invited to share their views on potential plans for new Holloway campus.

Date: 7 March 2016

Early ideas about London Metropolitan University’s new campus go on display this week as part of the next phase of the One Campus|One Community project.

Design Engine Architects, who were commissioned to develop the master plan for the future campus in Islington, have been meeting with staff and students to discuss their needs for the new environment. They have used this feedback – the result of over 30 consultation sessions - to develop potential ideas for the campus master plan.  

An open display will be installed in the Graduate Centre, Holloway, from the afternoon of Monday 7 March until Friday 18 March.

John Ridgett, Director of Design Engine, said: “These are not final plans but are concepts about the potential development of the campus. These ideas are based on our analysis of the current estate and the feedback we’ve received so far during the consultations.

“We want members of the University community to review these ideas and share their thoughts with us to make sure we arrive at a campus that is not only inspiring but fit for purpose too.”

The exhibition will run until 18 March and can be found on the first floor of the Graduate Centre, just off the Junction. Visitors will be able to leave feedback on the concepts, or can contribute to the consultation discussion online. The displays can also be viewed on the One Campus|One Community website

In October, London Met announced plans to invest £125m to create a new campus in Islington.
