32LIF access update

All rooms in 32LIF are now open. The building can only be accessed by the Lincoln's Inn Fields entrance. The entrance on Portugal Street remains closed until clearance is given by Westminster Council.

Centre Buildings Update - works in Clare Market starting early May

Now that the new building has obtained planning consent things are really starting to happen on the Centre Buildings project and you will notice more changes around the campus during the Summer term. 

 

Starting in early May, our contractors will be working in Clare Market and Portugal Street outside St Clements and the Old Building. They will be digging a trench to be divert utilities and then widening the road, so these works are completed before demolition starts in July 2015. 

 

For further information please see the Centre Buildings webpage|.
