Closure of lift on Level 6 in EC Stoner

From Friday 2 June until Friday 27 October 2017 we will be refurbishing the area between rooms 6.74a to 6.62 on Level 6, to form the new IT Cluster.


As part of the work this means there will be no access to lift 48 on Level 6. This lift will travel between Level 7 – Level 11 only, during the construction period.

This work is to accommodate the planned £7.5m investment for the School of Earth and Environment to create multi–disciplinary meeting and teaching spaces for staff and PhD students.

For staff, students and visitors this will mean:

  • Using alternative lifts 46 and 181, as indicated on the map.
  • Using the most accessible route from the south side/MSCP which would be to enter Roger Stevens via the ramp at L7, take the lift to L10 Red Route and make your way to EC Stoner to use one of the lifts (46, 48 and 181) to get to your place of work.
  • Please note that Lift 181 is only accessible from L7

Expansion Plans for the School of Earth and Environment

The University Capital Group recently gave the go ahead to the exciting plans for a £7.5m investment for the School of Earth and Environment into levels 7 and 10 of the Staff Centre building, together with the creation of a new collaborative space for the Priestley International Centre for Climate.

A programme of enabling works is currently underway to facilitate the creation of more office and meeting room spaces. The project is scheduled for completion in Autumn 2018.

The expansion marks the continued success and growth of the School, which continues to maintain its strong foundations of world leading research excellence and being a national market-leader in student recruitment. This investment will also enable the establishment of both the Priestley Centre research platform and a Met Office Joint Research Unit – which will realise the Priestley Centre mission to promote interdisciplinary climate-solutions research of the highest standard.
