In the latest round of campus developments at London South Bank University (LSBU), two new bespoke buildings are coming to our Elephant & Castle campus. The first is our custom-built Student Centre that opened late 2012. This will be followed in 2013 with our Enterprise Centre in the Grade II listed Georgian Terraces in the north west corner of our campus. The new developments are part of LSBU's commitment to developing and improving our campuses in order to continue meeting the needs of our students.
Our spacious and bright, newly-opened Student Centre cleverly combines all our non-academic student support services with the new permanent home of our Students' Union. This comfortable space is the place for informal meetings with lecturers and group working with fellow students. Then it seamlessly converts to an intemit evening venue. Taking a prime location under our existing Tower Block, it makes a vibrant centre adjacent to our Borough Road building, the original heart of our city-centre campus. The architect for the project was London-based Hawkins Brown, a past Higher Education Architect of the Year.
This purpose-built interior features non-academic student support and inspiring learning facilities
As a University, we're very committed to business start-ups and knowledge transfer. We appreciate the space and resources new businesses need so our dedicated centre will bring resources together in a prominent hub for our campus and London's commercial needs. The development will transform this local landmark into an open gateway for the campus and make it fit for the 21st century.
This specialist hub brings a new lease of life to some of the oldest buildings on campus
The Grade II listed Georgian Buildings at St George's Circus will be transformed to become the University's Enterprise Centre. It will house incubation space, allied retail units, meeting rooms and an open public reception space, gallery and café.
