New University Teaching Centre Gets Go-Ahead

Planning permission has been granted for a new Teaching & Learning Centre at the University of Leicester.

The scheme will deliver over 95,000sq ft of new space for the University on it’s Freemen’s Common campus in the city. This including 600-capacity and 250-capacity lecture theatres as well as flat floor teaching spaces ranging in capacity from 30 person to 120 person. The building will also house social, learning and exhibition spaces for up to 2,400 students.

In addition, 200 university staff have the potential to fill the remaining office space in the building which will feature a green wall on the external facade.

The scheme will form part of our wider University masterplan which has been developed over a number of years, most recently on the Freemen’s Common site in collaboration with Sheppard Robson.
