West Courtyard Renovation

The West Courtyard renovation has been in planning for a number of years. The current plan involves moving the Toastie Bar to the other side of the room and creating a seating area in the outside area behind the current location of the Toastie Bar (see Courtyard Panorama).

The new Toastie Bar will be made larger and more open: with a £7000 manually-operated coffee machine installed to serve drinks during the day, with scope for a greater variety of snacks and drinks too. The new Toastie Bar will also be used more to serve drinks during events.

The courtyard itself will become more of a café space, but some of the current facilities (pool table, table football and vending machines) will remain.


There are currently three proposed designs for the renovation:


West Courtyard Proposed Layout 1                                                                    Panorama


West Courtyard Proposed Layout 2                                                                     Panorama


West Courtyard Proposed Layout 3                                                                      Panorama

You can find further Floor Plan Drawings for each of the 3 Proposals here.


We would really appreciate it if you could fill out the feedback form (link below) so that the development can go ahead in a way that pleases the greatest number of the JCR possible. The time allocated for the renovation is currently from the beginning of September to the end of October.
