Goodbye to the Botany Huts!

Image Trevor Hodkinson
Those of you making their way to the Science area of College will have walked past our temporary accommodation which we have been using for over 30 years. So these temporary buildings have become a permanent fixture for generations of plant scientists.

Plans to remove the botany huts, as they are universally known, and renovate the site is finally under way this week and the square outside the main Botany Building will be converted into a new grassed open space for staff and students to enjoy. Being next to the Botany Building the planting up of the borders will be very special.

Postgraduates have been moved into custom built offices and laboratories in the Biotechnology Building.
