We hope you are as excited as we are about returning to Old College and want you to make the most of the fantastic facilities. Maps of the building will be available from the Old College Reception.

Please be aware that although Old College will be open from 28 November and Law School staff will be moving in to their offices, there will still be a lot of work going on with movers and contractors finishing snagging work on the building, so please only visit the building if absolutely necessary until the move is complete and teaching commences in January.

The Law School will be holding scheduled tours of the facilities in the New Year. We will publish these dates shortly.

We have created a short video as a reminder of the fantastic facilities the refurbished Old College will provide for the Law School on our return. We can’t wait to welcome back to our home.
