The purpose-built Teaching and Learning Building at University of Birmingham
The purpose-built Teaching and Learning Building at the University of Birmingham consists of a 500-seater lecture theatre, an interactive 250-seater lecture theatre, 10 30-seater seminar rooms, more than 500 study spaces, and a café. It has played host to more than 40 inspiring lectures and hundreds of staff and students. It is part of the University of Birmingham’s commitment to providing the best facilities for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir David Eastwood said: “The Teaching and Learning Building is at the heart of a capital plan that prioritises academic and teaching facilities. We are committed to giving our undergraduate and postgraduate students the best place to carry out their studies. I believe this is the kind of building in which people will discover their gifts and demonstrate their perseverance and confidence as they achieve their aspirations.”
Throughout the design and construction of the building, the architects and construction company worked closely with students and teaching staff to ensure it would meet their needs. As a result, it provides diverse and accessible spaces for all.
