Building a new future for SSEES

18 September 2003

UCL's School of Slavonic & East European Studies (SSEES) celebrated at the signing-off ceremony for their much-needed new premises in July.

SSEES staff sign off the building plans

The major building project, designed by architects Short & Associates, will unite all SSEES staff at one location for the first time.

The Taviton Street site - currently used as a car park for UCL's Department of Chemistry - will be transformed to include a four-storey library, housing SSEES's unique collections of Russian and East European books, a language unit, and offices for academic and administrative staff. The school will also benefit from refurbished offices in the adjacent Examination Halls building.

Work is due to start on the site in November 2003, and the school will take possession of its eagerly awaited new premises in the summer of 2005.
