Local community invited to share thoughts on new Islington campus

An open evening on 16 March will give local people the chance to see early concepts for our new Islington campus.

Date: 9 March 2016

London Metropolitan University will be opening its doors to the local community on Wednesday night to give people a chance to see early concepts for its new Holloway campus.

Early ideas about the new campus are currently on display in the Graduate Centre, Holloway Road, but the University will be hosting a public viewing on Wednesday 16 March from 5pm.

Design Engine Architects, who were commissioned to develop the master plan for the future campus in Islington, have used feedback from over 30 consultation sessions to develop potential ideas for the campus.  

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.”

Visitors to the open evening will be able to leave feedback on the concepts, or can contribute to the consultation discussion online. The display is available to view here for those who cannot attend the open evening. 

In October, London Met announced plans to invest £125m to create a new campus in Islington as part of its One Campus|One Community project.
