The new student services hub will see the interior of an entire block of the Grade II listed Aston Webb building remodelled to house a number of student-facing teams which are currently scattered across campus.
This will include facilities for the Careers Network, Student Services and Registry, as well as a reception, information zone and a suite of one-to-one consultation rooms. The Hub will also include mixed social and learning spaces and a 250-seat lecture theatre.
Work is currently underway on stripping out the interior which has been added to over the intervening years in order to reveal some of the magnificent features of the building, which will then be incorporated into this very modern, 21st century student space.
When complete, it will mean students will be able to access to modern support facilities for a wide range of services and enquiries, staffed by colleagues dedicated to promoting student success, in a stunning space renovated to meet the present and future needs of the University community.
