We're building the place to be
Lancaster University Management School is embarking on an ambitious infrastructure programme, creating cutting-edge facilities and significantly more space for our students, staff and partners. The School is a place for collaboration; a place where our international community can challenge convention, push boundaries and shape agendas; a place for the very best research-led teaching and engagement.
The new building will offer state-of-the-art technology and innovative study space to accommodate the needs of our growing LUMS community and reflect our status as a globally-leading Management School.
Improving and extending our facilities is a priority for the Management School. The LUMS Space Programme encapsulates our ambition to realise this priority. This month, the University has taken the decision to pause construction activity in order that a full reassessment of the plans can take place. This reassessment will include an examination of costs and designs in order to ensure that the Space Programme delivers the very best facilities for our students and staff at the same time as maximising value for money.
During this period it remains our upmost priority that staff and students continue to have access to high quality facilities across the campus. Until building work recommences we are keen to minimise inconvenience and, as such, are reopening lecture theatres 7 and 8 in the School, as well as releasing car parking spaces on Gillow Avenue in February.
We will keep you up to date on new plans, designed to offer best value for money, as well as increased capacity and sustainability as we strive towards realising the School’s 2025 Ambition. The timeline for the LUMS Space Programme will be updated once final plans are established.
