The Learning Platform

At the heart of the campus, the Learning Platform is an enclosed space for students to study, work and socialise all year round. It offers a vibrant environment where staff and students can interact more informally and build their professional networks.

The Learning Platform has been created by placing a roof over the previously outdoor podium area. It has been completely remodelled and the new layout contains contemporary furnishings.

New catering area

Refreshments are provided at our new and improved catering area (from October 2012), situated within the Learning Platform.

The new catering area offers an international range of sustainably sourced refreshments, with extended opening hours to support students and staff throughout the day and during weekend activities.

New state-of-the-art facilities

These are new, dynamic multi-purpose facilities that can host a variety of high-profile events such as exhibitions, seminars and forums.

These areas provide our students with valuable opportunities to showcase work, network with industry professionals and participate in a range of extra-curricular events.

A green and sustainable campus

Our facilities have become more sustainable to support a green, lower-carbon, environmental agenda.

Natural lighting and air flow have been improved to reduce heat loss and offer significant carbon savings.

The roof over the Learning Platform maximises natural light with a glazed 'Blade'.

A rainwater-harvesting system has been installed on the roof to feed the campus lavatories, saving on water consumption.

Improved library services and space

Our library area has expanded to provide better study areas for students.

With direct access from the new Learning Platform, it supports our students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"It is vital that we can breathe new life into the Marylebone site and create a better sense of identity. This project does that by creating a real heart to the campus, which will be vibrant and uplifting for all students, staff and visitors.

It will also ensure there is room for adaptation and change as the University responds to future needs."
Trevor Wills, Director of Estates & Facilities
