As part of the University’s continuing investment in the campus, a new building – the Sir William Henry Bragg Building – is being built situated between the Schools of Chemistry and Electronic & Electrical Engineering on the northeast side of the campus.

Construction starts in late May 2018 and the new building will be completed in summer 2020.

This is a hugely important and exciting development for the University and we’re keen to inform and update you on the plans and progress to date and answer any questions you may have.  

The £96 million building is the largest single investment to date in the University’s estate and will become home to the Schools of Computing and Physics & Astronomy, with direct links to the School of Chemistry and Faculty of Engineering, forming an integrated campus of engineering and physical sciences.

The Sir William Henry Bragg Building will provide an exceptional environment for collaborative research, with high specification laboratories and facilities, and enhanced teaching space.

The building will also incorporate the Bragg Centre for Materials Research which will bring together researchers from schools across the University campus and beyond to create an environment that will foster ground-breaking, interdisciplinary research to accelerate impact on society.
