Dorothy Hill Engineering and Sciences Library building work

There is extensive building work happening in the Dorothy Hill Engineering and Sciences Library to reconfigure and improve student spaces. The work is expected to be completed by 9 March 2018.

Most of the work will involve Levels 1 and 2, but there will be significant noise that could affect users in other parts of the library and occupants of the surrounding buildings. Most of the loudest work will take place outside of business hours, however there may be some noisy periods throughout the day. 

We apologise for any inconvenience to our users and we thank you for your patience as we work to improve library spaces.

Project Detail

Level 1

  • The 24/7 study space is now closed. It is being converted into a microscopy facility for the Centre for Advanced Imaging. Information will be provided on signs and the Library website to direct students to alternative study spaces. Alternative 24/7 spaces will be provided for students. 

Level 2

  • Former staff areas will be converted into student space.
  • Current student spaces will be refurbished, and additional spaces provided, including:
    • Three meeting rooms that will be available for booking
    • New toilets
    • Kitchen
  • There will be some disturbance to the training room during the work.
  • Lift access will continue, allowing people to move between Level 2 and higher levels (there will be no access to Level 1).
  • The AskUs service point will continue to operate.
  • The book return will continue to be accessible.
  • This level will open as a 24/7 space when the construction is finished.
