During the Guild’s AGM, we had a few students ask the Guild Executive Officers about the progress of the new Higher Education building at Holland Street/ George Street (Phase 2). The Guild are excited to be involved with this as Phase 2 will hugely benefit our HE students. Phase 2, to be known as Moss House, will be opening in November 2019 and will be a whopping 85,000 square feet and will include a variety of new features! By comparison, McIntyre House is 75,000 square feet.
The new features at Moss House will include a brand new Guild Office, a strengthening and conditioning sports gym for curriculum use, three (100 seat) lecture theatres, an American-style diner and ‘Living Room’ coffee shop that will open into the courtyard, and as well have social spaces for studying or socialising with your peers. It will also have a new HE gymnasium, a range of small and large flat classrooms and new health and social care practical and simulation suites.The student employability suite HIRED will also move from Summer Row to Moss House.
The Guild of Students are looking forward to being a part of this, our new office will mean we will have an increased presence, more organisational space, a meeting room and a retail presence right at the heart of the UCB campus.
