The Graduate Centre, which has received a £25m injection and will be the new home for the university’s School of Economics and Finance, has been designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre. It will feature a 200-seat, glass-sided lecture space, a dedicated foyer with café and a range of seminar and breakout spaces on other floors.

The building will also feature an open plan reception space in a ‘floating’ glass box with outdoor roof terrace, which Events & Hospitality QM has said will be ideal for drinks receptions and networking events.

Simon Barlow, marketing and communications executive for Events & Hospitality QM, said: "This is a fantastic development in the heart of the QMUL Mile End campus. It brings additional academic facilities to underpin QMUL's academic aspirations, while also presenting a contemporary space with innovative use of light and glass for use by those seeking new and unusual event spaces in this vibrant part of London."
