City, University of London – Lecture Spaces

The Lecture Spaces Project provides a pool of high quality teaching spaces within deep, under-used basement spaces at City, University of London’s Northampton Square campus. The project provides maximum flexibility to suit a range of teaching and learning models focussed around student collaboration.

The accommodation includes lecture theatres, PC labs and seminar rooms, supported by generous break-out areas and other support facilities. These spaces positively link to newly created campus circulation routes and provide a strong presence at upper floor levels through ‘pop-up’ elements at pavement level, which maximise natural light to key areas.

"What I like about this room is that it enables you to be more interactive and engage the students and I think that really helps the teaching to be more effective."
