New student accommodation and campus buildings in the pipeline

The London South Bank University has announced its intentions to transform its  campus, and invest up to £500m.

The plans are currently in the early stages, but the university is currently seeking development partners.

Its initial plans to redevelop its Technopark campus include new lecture theatres, multi-use laboratories, general teaching spaces, conference facilities and student accommodation.

A spokesperson for the university told the News: “London South Bank University is at the initial stages of realising plans to redevelop the London Road and Technopark areas of its campus.

“Over its 125 year history LSBU, in common with all London universities, has seen many changes to its local environment and the needs of its students, teaching and professional staff.

“As such, a sustained programme of investment in first class facilities to support student success and deliver real world impact lies at the heart of the University’s long-term corporate strategy.

“Future investment plans include major improvements across the whole campus to enhance further the experience of students by re-purposing underutilised building stock and, in doing so, contributing to the regeneration of the local area as whole.”
