The contractors, Cameron Black, are making good progress and have been on site since June. The library, clusters and seminar rooms in the project area are now closed and UCL Library Services, Estates and ISD have worked closely with the Medical School to provide suitable alternative facilities for staff and students for the duration of the building works. The Cruciform Library - collections and staff support - has been relocated to the Second Floor of the UCL Science Library (DMS Watson Building). The Cruciform basement locker provision has been consolidated to locker room BC05A.
To see photographs of the project area please see our Flickr gallery.
The Cruciform Hub will open in Spring 2014 with fantastic teaching and learning spaces, including your Library, seminar rooms and a new computer cluster.
