Dame Jane Goodall declared the new Building 60 building open on Thursday 24 October in front of an audience of UEA students and staff, including Vice-Chancellor Prof David Richardson, Prof Ben Garrod, presenter and Professor of Evolutionary Biology and Science Engagement.

The New Science Building is UEA’s £30 million state-of the- art teaching and learning building. It has a floor span of over 7,000m2 and is located on campus at the bottom of Chancellor’s Drive on the campus.

The building can also lay claim to being one of the most accessible at any university in the country, with UEA’s Access All Areas network, the University’s forum for disabled staff members and students, having been consulted throughout the project.
