400 Seat Lecture Theatre
As part of Lancaster University’s growth strategy and in response to feedback from staff and students, the University is investing £4.7m in a new purpose-built, 400-seat lecture theatre.
Complimenting the surroundings
The state-of-the art facility will be set back from the Spine, connecting to the FASS building on North campus. With a capacity of 400 seats, the lecture theatre will become the largest on campus, easing the demand on other teaching facilities and doubling-up as space to host large-scale conferences.
As part of the scheme, the South elevation of the FASS building will be refurbished, replacing the windows to the south facing offices and creating a new entrance in to the building.
Design by Consultation
JM Architects have worked with the university’s Estates Development team to develop designs for the new cutting-edge facility. Consultation took place with representatives from the Student’s Union, academic and departmental staff, students, and the Lancaster Conferences+ team to explore ideas on the layout, look and feel, and types of furniture and equipment that the space may need.
