What’s changing at Senate House – First regular update

7 June 2019

Senate House is changing. Our priority is to minimise the disruption for students, staff and our local community, so we’ll post regular updates here on what’s changing. 

Senate House is now closed
Work is now underway to build the new two-storey food court. Senate House will be closed from Monday 10 June – 23 September 2019.

From 10 June the site hoardings go up around the building, as Kier, the main contractors, start to clear the ground floor and take out carpets and ceilings.
