ZONES

Looking at the redevelopment of our learning environments

ZONES is our learning environment transformation programme and one of the biggest and most exciting projects in LSBU's history. It will affect how we think, feel and study, and will revolutionise the student experience.

Through modernising our facilities, learning spaces and technology, we will have a campus in South London that is fit for the future and serves the needs of generations of students, staff and the wider LSBU community. The goal is to create dedicated zones for learning, teaching and staff by renovating the London Road Building and making better use of the spaces that we currently have available across our whole campus.

What does this mean for you?

Our campus will be undergoing a lot of changes over the coming months which are outlined on our timeline. But what does this mean for you?

Library

By the 2021/22 academic year, LSBU students will have access to a 20,000sqm modern learning space in the London Road Building, with an open-plan library, open-access computer and study rooms.

Sports Facilities

We will have improved sports facilities including a modern and fully equipped gym, more space for students and staff to play and train, as well as an increase in useful facilities, such as showers, changing rooms and fitness areas. (Find out about the Academy of Sport).

Inclusivity

Inclusivity is a key value of LSBU, The new building will include improved accessibility through a new entrance to the building and provision of more lifts.

Sustainability

Improving the sustainability of the London Road building is also an important priority and we aim to achieve a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating of "Very Good". The key sustainable features of the London Road redevelopment project will include improved insulation, utilising natural light and space for bicycle storage.
