University of Edinburgh launches student centre consultation
June 27 2017
Occupying a gap site between George and Bristo Square the Student Centre would provide a one-stop shop for university services and student wellbeing; including cafes, foodhalls and a nightclub.
Indicative plans drawn up by Page\Park have will be put on display for the first time today, illustrating how a rear access lane could be reborn as a public square.
University principal Sir Timothy O’Shea commented: “This inviting, inspiring space will underpin our vision to deliver an outstanding student experience. It will create a home from home where students feel welcomed and inspired to achieve their full potential.”
The phased project will begin with refurbishment of the existing gothic pile next year but full completion of the ambitious project isn’t planned until 2024.
