New ECS computer science building opened by Baroness Platt
The latest landmark building on the University's Highfield Campus was formally opened by Baroness Platt of Writtle on 9 July. Half of the building's four floors are occupied by ECS computer science research groups.
The striking new £18 million building, opened by Baroness Platt, is the latest stage in the programme to redesign the main entrance to the University in Highfield. Located on University Road, close to the Library, the building has a 430- seat lecture theatre and houses teaching and research facilities for staff and students of the University’s Schools of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) and Education, as well as the offices of the University’s security section.
