Learning and teaching centre opens its doors
The first phase of a £10 million renovation project has just opened which will create a new modern, fully accessible learning and teaching facility at Edinburgh.
As part of a range of investments around learning and teaching, the former Lister and Pfizer buildings at Roxburgh Place are being renovated.
Once complete, the Lister Learning and Teaching Centre will provide capacity for 900 students.
It will offer a mix of classrooms, tutorial and study space and a lecture theatre.
The Lister Learning and Teaching Centre is a short walk from George Square.
The building will be fully accessible, with lifts to all floors and accessible toilets.
Secure cycle racks will also be available.
The centre is currently accessed through a temporary entrance on Roxburgh Place. This entrance will remain in use until the redevelopment is completed in early 2018.
The renovation project is taking place in four phases, the first of which has just been completed.
Classrooms refurbished during the first phase are available to book via the University’s Timetabling Unit: http://www.ed.ac.uk/estates/buildings-information/bookable
Phases 2-4 will be completed in early 2018.
