New completion date for Old College refurbishment

The Law School's refurbished Old College home is to be ready two years earlier than first anticipated. 

This means that the north side of the building will be ready for teaching, working and study from January 2018.

New look for a leading Law School

The new design will provide a contemporary and dynamic environment for teaching, research and study, while celebrating and highlighting the treasured heritage and history of its Old College quarters.

Edinburgh is already a world-leading law school but this significant investment in its facilities signals its ambition to join the world’s top 10 elite.

The project so far

Originally the project was to be carried out in three distinct phases, which meant that the completion date was previously scheduled for autumn 2020.

 It has been decided that these three phases will be compressed into a single phase, accelerating the project to an earlier completion. 

The building works are scheduled to begin in autumn 2015.
