New boards in Hendrix Hall

As mentioned in the previous blog post, we’ve installed new boards in Hendrix Hall (D/L/028).

Responding to the frequent requests from academics who use the space - the boards are now counter-weighted and can be moved by hand, rather than the former motorised boards.


Here’s to seeing them full of academic content soon (but of course cleaned after each session).

Learning Spaces update - September 2016

Sorry it has been a while since the last update. Colleagues across the University are busy working on a number of projects that will enhance the experience in a number of learning spaces. Keep an eye out for the following improvements!

New carpets installed in:
Alcuin - ARRC/010 auditorium
Derwent - D/104 seminar room
King’s Manor - K/G07 seminar room
Sally Baldwin D/002, D/003 and D/008 seminar rooms
Vanbrugh - V/123, V/139 and V/C/123 seminar rooms

We’ve redecorated a number of rooms this summer to freshen them up.

We’ve installed new furniture in:
Biology - Biology B/B/102 and B/B/103 seminar rooms
Biology - Biology B/K/090
Derwent - D/L/007 and D/159 seminar rooms

We’ve installed new learning technology in:
Alcuin - AEW/003 lecture room and video link to Hull
Alcuin - AEW/105 seminar room
Berrick Saul - BS/005 auditorium
Chemistry - C/B/102 lecture room
Derwent - D/M/212 seminar room
Library - LFA/144 seminar room
Vanbrugh - V/139 seminar room
Grimston House - VX/230 and 231 seminar/meeting rooms

We’ve installed new teaching boards in D/L/028 Hendrix Hall and V/045 Vanbrugh lecture rooms.

We’ve also had lots going on behind the scenes for the Spring Lane Building before the handover in a few weeks, with a rapid ‘fit out’ programme for furniture and learning technology before teaching commences.

We’re now starting more detailed planning and discussions at the Learning Spaces Working Group for the Piazza Building on Campus East, due to open in spring 2018, and pulling together a programme of improvement works for existing teaching and learning spaces this year on campus. More to be shared soon!
