The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Westminster and the President of the Students’ Union officially opened the new learning spaces on 6 November 2015. The opening was attended by the Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Faculty staff and students, Students’ Union members, architects from Robert Hutson Architects and key staff from both Mullaly and Capita (who implemented and oversaw the project).

Situated on the upper fourth floor of 301 Regent Street, a dedicated learning area for Modern Languages students has been created. The space encourages greater interaction between staff and students and includes new state-of-the-art language labs for Interpreting and Translation students plus attractive offices for staff.

On the upper ground floor, a new lecture theatre and large classroom have been created plus a silent study space for students.

Professor Roland Dannreuther, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities said: "I am delighted with these wonderful new learning spaces in the historic headquarters of the University of Westminster in 309 Regent Street. These spaces bring a sense of excitement to the student experience, providing modern state-of-the-art facilities that are sensitive to the illustrious history of the building."
