New student spaces taking shape in former Lincoln retail units

A peek inside: The University of Lincoln’s new learning and teaching spaces in two empty retail units have an opening date set this autumn.

The University of Lincoln’s new teaching and learning development in two former retail units in the city centre is well underway, with an opening date set of Monday, September 15.

As previously reported, two lecture spaces, three seminar spaces and two social learning spaces will be created on the ground floor of the Junxion student accommodation building on St Marks.

The learning spaces, which are all air conditioned, will have a combined capacity of 246.

The units, previously housing Raspberry Village and Venture Photography had been empty for 17 months and 3 years respectively.

The university says it is meeting the demand for growing student numbers, changing modes of teaching and an increase in the demand for bookable and informal learning spaces.
