Project Description: The construction of a brand new purpose-built library for the university provides a stimulating and inspiring place to study and acts as a symbol of Roehampton's commitment to providing the best possible resources and environment for its students. The £34 million four-storey building has a range of learning spaces, from individual quiet spaces to larger areas for group working, plus a reading room specifically for special collections. The library will also host a series of exhibitions to make its collections accessible to students, staff and the public.
The project also involved the addition of Chadwick Hall and construction of Elm Grove Hall, the University's new purpose-built five-storey halls of residence with over 350 rooms featuring ensuite bathrooms, conference centre, and new reception area for the University. This means that the University can now offer accommodation for 2,066 students.
