Buildings and Environment
Contributions to Buildings and Environment enable us to develop new spaces in College, as well as improve and refurbish existing areas for the benefit of the entire College community.
It is vital that we provide facilities that enable the 21st century scholar to flourish. In recent years, Mansfield has put significant emphasis on improving the College estate and Mansfield has never been in better shape or offered more facilities to its students than it does today.
Living spaces and bedrooms have been refurbished and brought up to date. Mansfield now has a fantastic café - 'The Crypt' - and a terrace, which are both used by students as informal study spaces or places to relax with friends.
The Quad has been landscaped and the Chapel, which brings together the College community on a daily basis for meals, enjoying a recital, taking a moment for reflection or attending a service, has undergone work to make the heating more energy efficient.
Our most recent building project, the Hands Building, opened in September 2017 and includes 74 en-suite bedrooms and Mansfield's first purpose-built lecture theatre, the Sir Joseph Hotung Auditorium. In addition, it is home to the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights.
It is funding directed to the Buildings and Environment Fund this has enabled this transformation to take place. Imagine what we can achieve with future support.
