Work has begun on a £2.6m, 2,300sq.m refurbishment of the Language Centre within the Parkinson Building at the University of Leeds. The existing floors will be reconfigured to create eight new class rooms, a new reception area, social spaces and staff offices.
The project will provide modern language learning facilities that ensure competitive, quality learning and teaching spaces for all international students at the start of, and throughout, their journey at the University of Leeds.
The redevelopment of the common areas will help to ensure student integration and wellbeing, at what is usually their first introduction to the university. It will also assist with the university’s commitment to an excellent international student experience.
The project is due for completion in 2019.
