The University of Westminster's £3.5m project to improve the Little Titchfield Street campus is now under way and will finish in August 2013.
Home to the School of Law, the Little Titchfield Street site will be transformed to provide our students with the best possible learning experience.
Phase one of the redevelopment works finished in autumn 2012. Staff, students and visitors can now enjoy:
An improved library layout
The new layout not only makes better use of existing space, it offers students even more space for group work, with more open access computers.
A new cafe area
Our new modern and stylish cafe is an ideal place to relax and enjoy a Fairtrade coffee and other refreshments, during hours designed to meet our students’ needs.
The re-designed reception area creates a more inviting and accessible entry into the building with up-to-date information and images of student life via a new plasma-screen wall.
Other improvements include a new Registry Office on the ground floor, refurbished toilet facilities, improved building access and disability provision.
Phase two at Little Titchfield Street will take place during the summer holidays in 2013 and will create:
A new 380-seat lecture theatre
This will offer a spacious and dynamic learning environment, with state-of-the-art facilities.
The University of Westminster is ensuring that sustainability is built in to every stage of this project.
Here are some of the ways we are doing so:
- Ensuring that the re-design of spaces will optimise energy efficiency
- Installing LED lighting to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions
- Installing water optimisers in toilet facilities to save thousands of litres of water per year
- Ensuring that all coffee served in our cafe will be Fairtrade.
