Work starts on new multi million pound Management School building

Work has started on the construction of a multi-million pound building for Lancaster University Management School (LUMS).

The new five storey building will be a fantastic addition to the current LUMS buildings offering cutting-edge facilities and significantly more space for LUMS students, staff and partners. 

Currently referred to as the ‘West Pavilion’, the new building will be located on the grassed area next to the LUMS main entrance and Gillow Avenue.


Key features of the building will include:


  • Total building 5,667m2, a space equivalent to the size of around four tennis courts per floor
  • 2 new 200 seat lecture theatres
  • 125 seat lecture theatre
  • Collaboration space
  • Executive teaching suite
  • 3 floors of offices to accommodate 2 LUMS departments
  • New reception


You can view a computer generated video of the new building here…

The construction is planned to complete ready for the 2020/21 academic year, therefore current first year students on a three-year degree will have use of the new facilities in their final year.

Dean of Lancaster University Management School, Professor Angus Laing said:

“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.”
