Pictures: inside the John Henry Brookes building
The Tab was offered a tour of the new building just days before it opens.
The Tab gets an exclusive sneak peek inside the long awaited John Henry Brookes building, which (finally!) opens, in stages, from 24th February.
The building work, which has been going on for the entire duration of my time here at Brookes has cost the university £132 million in total (including Abercrombie, which opened in 2013).
So, when we say our goodbyes to the old library this Friday at 8pm, it will be for the last time. The new library, which for now can only be accessed through Abercrombie, will open on Wednesday 26th February at 8.30am.
We’re still wondering why moving week just had to be this close to dissertation deadline?
Opening later on will be The Colonnade, a “cosmopolitan public space for Headington”, where the bank, bookshop, dentist and doctors can be found in one convenient space.
With thanks to Joanne Carr and Ed Reed for showing The Tab around.
