New pavilion and refurbishment is under way
We are transforming Aldham Robarts Library into a modern, fit-for-purpose space for our students to work, eat and relax.
As well as refurbishing the existing library, we are also building a brand new pavilion to expand our facilities for students and staff.
The project is providing:
- New study spaces for individuals and groups
- A café
- Improved landscaping and benches in the courtyard
- An attractive new green outdoor environment, including a brand new birch grove
The new pavilion will be in keeping with its surroundings, preserving the setting of neighbouring listed buildings and the conservation area.
Inside, the bright and airy refurbished library will be home to book stock, online and digital resources, our special collection and archive, dedicated study spaces and support services for our students.
Work on the brand new pavilion is due to be completed in late 2019 with the refurbishment of Aldham Robarts Library scheduled to be finished in late 2021.
