The Sir Bob Burgess Teaching and Learning Building is a key new building in the £150m redevelopment of the University of Leicester’s Freemen’s Common site.
The new building sits at the head of the new square, providing the main backdrop to the redevelopment at the north of the site. It is designed to provide flexible accommodation that is adaptable for changing needs.
As well as spaces for education, the Sir Bob Burgess Teaching and Learning Building contains staff offices and locations for exhibitions and events.
The Sir Bob Burgess Teaching and Learning Building contains multiple lecture theatres and teaching spaces in its 9,000 square metres of floorspace.
It features a central circulation atrium running east to west for the full length of the building. On the ground floor the spine connects into a large central reception and exhibition area.
The wider Freemen’s Common scheme includes more than 1,000 units of student accommodation and a 555-space car park. A student reception hub has been created in the refurbished listed Freemen’s Cottages.
