Going Bush

King's College, thwarted earlier this year in some of its property ambitions, is leasing the four main buildings that comprise Bush House, the re-furbished former home of the BBC World Service.

The move into Bush House, Melbourne House, Strand House and King House  - now marketed as The Adwych Quarter - will be phased from September next year.  The new buildings will be used for "student study and social space, new teaching facilities and academic accommodation".  Groovy pads for the dons ?

Never one for understatement, Aussie Prof Eddie Byrne, who still refers to the College just as 'King's' , says 'This acquisition represents a defining moment in the history of King’s. We aim to consolidate our position as a top 20 global university by providing world class education and research facilities.'
