Bayes Centre

Our Building

Located on Potterrow at the heart of the University of Edinburgh’s Central campus

The £45 million Bayes Centre building, designed by Bennetts Associates, was officially opened in October 2018 by University of Edinburgh Chancellor HRH The Princess Royal. 

The Bayes Centre is physically connected to the world-leading Informatics Forum, home to the largest computing research department in Europe, and the Dugald Stewart Building which hosts the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences.

The building provides space for approximately 650 researchers, students and external partners over five floors, the Centre’s impressive space is open in design, providing interactive places for occupants from across academia, industry and the public sector to foster relationships. Due to this deliberate design, the Centre creates a collaborative community which works in synergy to unlock pioneering advances in data science and artificial intelligence.

The Bayes Centre building has won the 'Large Project' Award at the 2019 Edinburgh Architectural Association Awards.

Practical information regarding the building is available for University staff via the Bayes Intranet.
