Multi-million pound investment in teaching facilities
The latest phase of the £75m Leeds University Business School (LUBS) and Law transformation programme has been completed.
Teaching will commence in the Newlyn Building in October
The Newlyn Building, in Mount Preston Street, provides central teaching space specifically four teaching rooms with a capacity for 100 people and four with a capacity for 36 people.
Occupation of the building takes place from this month, with the Language Centre using the space for pre-sessional courses during the summer and teaching commencing in October.
The Newlyn Building has been named after Walter Newlyn (1915-2002), who was Professor of development economics at Leeds from 1967 to 1978
Professor Nick Scott, Academic Lead for the transformation programme, which includes the Newlyn Building and other associated projects, said: We will continue to attract a high-quality, internationally diverse body of students and deliver an exceptional learning experience comparable with other leading Schools through providing an environment that supports students and staff to achieve their full potential, whilst maintaining our ability to enhance, innovate and adapt student education practices. The Newlyn Building is just one part of our programme that will enable us to achieve this vision.
A new flagship teaching centre in Cloberry Street (the former Purple Zone car park) will further add to our portfolio of world-class, innovative teaching spaces that support participative learning. More collaborative and inclusive learning spaces and activities will support our students to develop the knowledge, skills, behaviours and professional competencies to better equip them for working in a global environment.
