Works are well underway at the new prestigious, £40 million Durham University Teaching & Learning Facility at the Lower Mountjoy site. The flagship project is due to be completed in September 2019 and is part of the Universities 2017 – 2027 strategy to deliver outstanding educational facilities.
The new Teaching and Learning Centre will have lecture theatres, teaching rooms, education labs, student learning zones and catering facilities.
