New University Building Unveiled

26th September 2014

Sheffield Hallam University's brand new £27 million development at Collegiate Crescent has opened, and is now being used by students and staff from law, politics, sociology and psychology courses.

The new Heart of the Campus - a three storey development - has brought staff and students based at the campus together, in an open, energy-efficient building with cutting edge facilities. It includes informal learning spaces, a café, rooftop garden, lecture theatre and even has its own courtroom for mock trials. Teaching facilities include sensory labs, interview rooms and even a Faraday cage, for use by psychology students. The building is heated entirely by ground source heat pumps, and features solar panels and rainwater harvesting. The building is the home of the new Department of Law and Criminology, but will be used by staff and students from a range of areas, including student services and the students union. Mark Swales, director of estates and facilities at Sheffield Hallam, said: "Our new Heart of the Campus building gives our students high-quality, innovative teaching and learning facilities. But it also creates a true heart, where students can come together - for informal social gatherings or for more structured learning. "The building is sympathetic to the heritage and leafy environment of this picturesque conservation area, and features artwork created by artist Chris Tipping which reflects that."
