Build timings update

Morning all

Please find below an update on the latest timings of the build project, which is progressing well over the last couple of weeks.



This will be ready from around the 20th October for fit-out and an official launch date will be announced by the MSU.


MSU office and Northern corridor from the dining hall through to the bar and shop

This is currently the very narrow corridor down to the shop. This is due to open up at the same time as the bar with the new MSU offices complete coming off the dining hall area towards the new bar - offering them office space as well as space to have informal meetings.


Student hub

The space between reception, the new offices and the dining hall – which includes relaxing space for students, meeting space etc – is currently expected to open at the end of November. The offices next to this space include Student Support, the Futures team and Finance. These offices are most likely to be completed and moved into over the Christmas break, along with the new entrance which faces out to the Sport Centre. They will be ready sooner but some of the final elements of the build such as moving a lift shaft are likely to be disruptive to the students using these services, so the move will be delayed until everything is ready.


If you have any questions on timings, please post below.


With best regards
