Information Commons makeover – summer 2017

10 years on and more than 13 million visitors later, our Information Commons is getting a makeover!

We’ll be refurbishing the building over the summer, tackling wear and tear issues, replacing floor coverings and introducing a fresh new colour scheme.

There will also be improved lighting, new acoustic panels to minimise noise issues and we’ll be relocating the digital screens to more useful places.

The building will close once exams are over at midnight on 9 June and re-open on 18 September ready for the start of the new academic year.

Later in the year, we’ll also be replacing the lift cars, one at a time, to ensure that there is always one lift available.

This will take about six months in total, so should be complete by February 2018.
