The new Arts and Humanities Centre features a state-of-the art 400-seat performance auditorium as well as enhanced teaching provision with three combinable lecture theatres for a total capacity of more than 1,000 students, seminar facilities, informal study spaces, a new cafeteria and an outdoor seating area.
The building will be situated on the south-east edge of the existing campus, making it easily accessible and providing both a new gateway to the university and a landmark to the city.
The aim is to create a performance space that will sit alongside the UK’s leading concert venues, such as the Liverpool Philharmonic which is situated not far away on Grove Street.
The auditorium will have an optimum acoustic profile and capacity for a 70-piece orchestra. It will offer a variety of concerts including jazz, folk and classical performances.
