Bentham goes common

23 October 2003

A new common room for all staff and students has opened in the old Upper Refectory, under the UCL dome, next to the Wilkins Library.

Named the 'JBR' - the Jeremy Bentham Room - as the result of a 'name game' commissioned by the Graduate School, the room is intended as a place for the UCL community to relax, meet and work in comfortable surroundings.

The room was the brainchild of Professor Leslie Aiello, Head of the UCL Graduate School. She said: "I'm very pleased to see the hard work come to fruition. UCL's Estates & Facilities Division have done an excellent job, and carried out the refurbishment to a very high standard."
