Teaching Room Refurbishment

Caption: Teaching Rooms Before

The University made a capital investment of £750,000 to upgrade a number of teaching rooms. The spaces are more usable, bright and welcoming. They also benefit from better technology thereby increasing student satisfaction and strengthening the operational efficiency of our teaching spaces.

The flat teaching rooms in Squires Building, Northumberland Building, Coach Lane West A and Coach Lane West B had not been refurbished since 2006 and were in the need of a complete overhaul.

The rooms have been refitted with new carpets, lighting, decoration and blinds. The whiteboards and audio visual equipment was also replaced.

More flexible and efficient space

The teaching rooms were combined where possible by installing moveable partitions for greater flexibility. This increases the efficiency of the space and creates multifunctional rooms which allow for large examinations and lectures as well as smaller workshop settings.

Maximising the customisation aspect of the teaching rooms also resolves previous accessibility issues due to inaccessible furniture and lecterns.

The newly refurbished space is the first step towards the University’s goal of providing a corporate standard to all teaching room accommodation utilised by students and external bodies.
