How the new Monks building will look at Lincoln College

Comments (3)

Lincoln College has today announced ambitious plans to expand its ‘Monks’ building, on Monks Road.

The building, located at the front of the college, will house a new learning resources centre and student common room.

The project will start in September 2013, and should be complete for the start of term in September 2014, costing a total of £4.5 million.

A total of £1.5 million funds have been secured towards the project from a bid to the Funding Council, with a part of the funds from the Skills Funding Agency.

A glass atrium will be built to the side of the building which will serve as the new entrance to the student hub.

The first floor will house a larger student common room and a centre for professional excellence with flexible learning spaces for use by students and staff.

The plans will also add a second floor to the building, which will house the learning centre that will stretch from one end of the building to the other.

The new space will house all the multimedia resources that students need while the entire building will be Wi-Fi enabled.

This project follows the £7.5 million Dean’s Building completed in Summer 2012, which created sport and leisure facility out of the old building.

    No chance of a car park - The Council's hare-brained scheme department has decided that if there is no car parking anywhere, then the public will forget that they own cars and forget just how bad public transport is in so many areas.

    It will be interesting to see some other pictures of this latest extension. Having lived opposite the college for the last 16yrs I've seen a number of changes to the college buildings as they've expanded. Surely they will soon run out of space. The one thing that does'nt see any expansion is the car parking. It must be getting on for time to provide more public transport for the students, here and the Uni, and to discourage so many of them to use their cars as parking around the area is near impossible some days. A bus stop layby right outside the main college building might help for a start.
