Central House

The School of Graduate Studies, the DPU and the faculty office have moved out of Central House whilst work is done to prepare for the arrival of the School of Planning and the library.

Find out what this means for you below.

Facade of Central House

As a result of the refurbishment of Wates House, The Bartlett School of Planning and The Bartlett Library will be moving into Central House.

The Bartlett School of Planning will move into the 5th and 6th floors currently used by the DPU, the Faculty Office and small group of PhD students from The Bartlett School of Architecture.

The Bartlett Library will move into the ground floor, currently home to The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies.

Approximately eight weeks of work is needed to prepare these floors for their new use, and whilst this work is being done some of these groups will be relocated to 132 Hampstead Road.

The work is scheduled to take place between May and June.

To find out how you'll be affected and who to contact if you have a query, look at the list below.


The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies

Staff and students on the ground and lower ground floors of Central House will move to 132 Hampstead Rd temporarily, and will then be rehoused in new space in Central House.
