Computer and Information Sciences Building

The £7m Computer and Information Sciences building opened its doors in 2018. The state-of-the-art building has a stylish entrance with a bright and airy atrium, which allows for events and presentations from students and employers as well as additional student study space.

As a low carbon and sustainable ‘Smart Building’, complete with a specialised Building Management System, including its heating, cooling and ventilation, it is able to run itself efficiently and sustainably. This ‘Living Lab’ also supports student learning and link into the Digital Living and Future Engineering research areas.

The building was designed based on the Faculty's feedback, with a mixture of research spaces and specialist teaching spaces, as well as breakout areas, allowing students to informally collaborate, test and work on new ideas and projects.

The Computer and Information Sciences building, not only provides a cutting-edge environment for computer and information sciences courses but also serves as the hub for the department's activities as a founder member of the newly announced £40m Institute of Coding. The world-class consortium of 25 universities has been launched nationally by the Government to plug the digital skills gap and give UK an edge in the global digital economy, with Northumbria set to play a leading role.
