Update on the Global Centre for the Social Sciences (GCSS) Redevelopment
Demolition of the East Building, Clare Market, the Anchorage and the eastern part of St. Clements will start after the main exam period in 2015 has finished. The current occupants of these buildings will begin to relocate to other campus buildings including to the Queens, Aldwych and Sardinia Houses and to Towers 2 and 3. It has been decided to establish new catering facilities on the ground floor of the GCSS building, eventually closing the 4th floor restaurant in the Old Building. Construction of the GCSS building should start in 2016 and be completed by 2018, incidentally in the year the SLSEAA will be celebrating its 20 Year Jubilee.
Update on the Garden Halls Redevelopment
The Garden Halls located along Cartwright Gardens within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area will be all new by Autumn 2016. The University has awarded a contract valued at CHF 108 million to replace Canterbury Hall and Commonwealth Hall with a new modern building and completely refurbish Hughes Parry Hall.
