September 2018 - opening of the new Family Centre


The University has committed to investing £3 million in the new, purpose built facility.

Family Centre

Work is underway to create a new 104 children place nursery on the site of the redundant tennis courts to the front south elevation of Hope Hall on the Streatham Campus. The building size will be approximately 700m2 and will accommodate approximately 70 toddlers, 34 babies and 30 staff and will replace the existing Family Centre building.

The new two-storey building will comprise a steel framed structure on piled foundations with concrete floors and a lean-to timber roof structure, it is being built to a BREEAM 'Excellent' standard. The new facility will also include a large outdoor area in which the children can play, explore and learn.

Work began on site in November 2017 and is due to complete in the summer of 2018.

A weekly look ahead is displayed in the Green Room at Hope Hall where colleagues can see which works are due to take place each week and any possible impact.

The project team is working to ensure that any disruption is minimised. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience during this period.

All works are being undertaken by a third party contractor and their nominated sub-contractors, who are working within agreed restrictions to minimise any disruption to colleagues, students or visitors.
