University moves into new home for Innovation

The University of Leeds has moved into it’s brand new, state-of-the-art £40 million building, NEXUS.

NEXUS is a community of innovators located on the Leeds Campus, providing easy access to the University’s research and expertise designed to be a place to stimulate the development of research and innovation initiatives – an ‘incubation’ hub for technology-led collaborative partnerships developing world-class ideas born on the campus

The building also marks a key gateway to the Southern quarter of the University’s campus masterplan.

Dramatic triple-height spaces on the Ground and First floors of the 75,000 sq.ft building have been designed to support this innovation ecosystem, connecting business, academia and partners via a year-round programme of events and activities to deliver beneficial ‘cultivated collaborations’. Exhibition space and a 120-seat lecture theatre are key settings for this and a range of breakout spaces, a flexible seminar suite, café and business lounge offer additional spaces for communication and collaboration. Technical accommodation on the upper floors includes rentable laboratories and write-up spaces with a variety of fit-out levels and offices.
