Interior design team give campus a new year transformation

Last updated on 19 April 2024

Interior designers at the University of Leeds have given several buildings on campus a new year’s makeover as part of efforts to provide students and staff with more flexible spaces to work, meet and study.

Spaces in the Refectory, Cavendish Road and the Maurice Keyworth Building are among those that have been re-designed by the team. Find out more about the work below:

Located on the first floor of the Refectory Building, the Postgraduate Research Lounge is a new dedicated study and meeting space for postgraduate research students. Interior designers have completed a full redecoration of the space, providing a brighter and more versatile area for students. The team worked closely with Leeds University Union throughout the design process to make sure that the space met the needs of students.

Cavendish Road

Students from the School of English can now use their own dedicated study and collaborative space at Cavendish Road. The redecorated space on the top floor of the building has been kitted out with new furniture and has been designed to allow students to feel comfortable studying independently or collaboratively.
