Physics department move into Beecroft Building

Academics and other staff from the Department of Physics have moved into the Beecroft Building as the construction of this exceptional new structure draws to a close.

Work is still being concluded in some of the laboratory space in the building’s basement, and validation work by the department to make sure the Beecroft matches its specification in every respect continues, but its above-ground offices, teaching areas and communal spaces are all now in use.
Practical completion, which will mark the end of all landscaping work now underway around the building and the creation of the new Keble Gate entrance to the University Parks, is expected in early summer. An opening ceremony will follow in September.
