The building, to be completed in summer 2010, will house the Department of Media and Communications, allowing different sections of the department currently scattered across the campus, to centralise into a single purpose-built space including radio, TV and photographic studios. Students studying other courses will also benefit from the development as there will be a 250 seat lecture theatre, 120 seat screening room, meeting spaces and a café with outside seating.
