How will Bentham House change?

The project to develop Bentham House will mean we have extra space for teaching, research and support services, as well as new social and common areas for events and informal learning.

The building will become easier to navigate and more accessible for wheelchair users. Bentham House will also incorporate green features including bio-diverse roofs with photovoltaic arrays, and in support of UCL’s sustainability agenda, the new building will achieve a ‘BREEAM Very Good’ rating.

New features include:

  • A large reception area, linking directly to a bright and spacious central café and social hub, directly adjoining teaching and event spaces.
  • Better connections between the buildings on all upper floors.
  • Cutting-edge teaching and event spaces with greater capacity.
  • New student and staff common rooms.
  • New offices, meeting spaces and computer cluster rooms.
  • A specialist study suite for graduate research students.
