Refurbishment & Resources
Preserving our heritage
Purpose: to improve our buildings and rooms to remain competitive and to attract more conference business and to improve our resources such as IT provision and the facilities within the Jerwood Library to ensure we attract the best students and academics.
Current focus: repair and refurbishment of the boat house and refurbishment of S and F staircases. Improving IT provision within all College sites, including wi-fi access to all student accommodation.
Why support our refurbishment programme?
The College has a programme of much-needed renovation for all the staircases on the main College site. The refurbishment includes:
- structural alteration and refurbishment of gyp rooms and bathroom facilities
- improvements to electrics
- improvements to insulation to become more energy efficient
- repairing windows.
- new paint and soft furnishing (curtains/carpets)
- provision of new furniture
These improvements will help us attract the best students, and also reduce costs by making the rooms more energy-efficient. Refurbishment to our accommodation and to the Dining Hall will also help generate more conference income.
Costs of refurbishment
Each Staircase costs around £200,000 to refurbish.
