Student Centre Q&A

Filed under: What's on — Tags: , , — Communications Office @ 3:47 pm

Student CentreBuilding work on the new Student Centre and Albert Sloman Library extension on our Colchester Campus is planned to start at the end of April 2013. This major project is part of the University’s £200m capital investment plan, and is at the heart of our commitment to offer excellence in education, by providing the best possible facilities to current and future Essex students. The project has an expected completion date of late 2014 and will offer:

  • A one stop shop for accommodation, payments, registration and student welfare
  • A new IT learning hub for creative and group working
  • New IT facilities including touchdown access and new helpdesk
  • State-of-the-art media centre for Students’ Union media
  • New reception area to serve the whole campus
  • A 24-hour reading room
  • An archive and special collections book store
  • A 24-hour postgraduate study area
  • Additional study spaces and library shelving
  • Expanded student book collection in existing library
  • Modern new meeting space

Find out more online and come to the Q and A session on 19 March

You may already be aware of the project as it has been in the planning for some time. However, if you would like to find out more before work gets underway, we are holding a Q and A session on Tuesday 19 March 2013 in the Senate Room, 4.722 from 1-2pm.
