IC in The Diamond

The hoardings have been revealed, and our new building at the heart of the campus has been officially named The Diamond. As well as providing excellent facilities for Engineering teaching, we'll also be bringing our experience with the Information Commons into it  -  IC in The Diamond.

A fantastic facility for all students, with 1,000 study spaces, 16 group rooms, 8 media editing booths, 2 rooms with a total of 30 high-end media editing machines, 1 recording studio and 4 computing teaching labs with more than 400 computers. In addition, there'll be many more informal meeting and collaboration spaces ranging from soft furniture to study booths. We're really excited by it. Loads of information here, including a link to facts and figures and the webcam. Many of have been involved in the planning and design for the last two years, and it's great to see it come to fruition.

The spaces are really exciting - like the atrium with its study pods and balconies:

There'll even be a jet engine in it somewhere!
