First look at planned 35m Science Teaching Hub

The first images have been released of a new science teaching building that will 'transform' the science learning experience at the University of Aberdeen.

The University plans to build a new £35m Science Teaching Hub that will transform the learning experience for thousands of students and encourage school children to get involved in science subjects. 

The new building will feature cutting edge facilities and flexible teaching laboratory space which will encourage collaboration between students from different disciplines.  The building will provide the main teaching laboratories for students studying chemistry, physiology, biomedical sciences, geosciences and biological sciences.  

In addition, the facilities will support the University’s current public engagement and widening access activities.

The University has identified a site on its Old Aberdeen campus for the building - just off St Machar Drive near the Fraser Noble building, student Hub and Sir Duncan Rice Library.

An official public consultation period got underway last month, with members of the local and wider community invited to view plans and speak to University staff and the building’s architects.  If approved, it is hoped that the building will be available for teaching in 2021.

Professor Sir Ian Diamond, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen said: “We are extremely excited about this new Science Teaching Hub and the benefits it will bring to our students.

“Our lecturers are world-leading and with this new facility, they will have cutting-edge resources to enable them to deliver the very highest standard of teaching.

“Overall it will lead to a first class learning environment for our students and will help us continue to attract the brightest minds from all over the world to come and study and live in the north-east of Scotland.”

*A public consultation event will be held today (Wednesday, November 15) in the foyer of Sir Duncan Rice Library, between 2pm and 8pm. No booking is required.
