This is part of a massive new building, informally known as The Wrap, which replaced some existing buildings which were not well integrated into the rest of the campus.

The building provides several new lecture theatres, as well as an expanded library space and new eating places. It houses the Lord Ashcroft International Business School.

There was an existing central courtyard but the new courtyard, seen in the photo, will be more used, at least in good weather, although unfortunately some mature trees were lost as part of the building process.

As is almost mandatory in new developments, there are some solar panels, but more interestingly, there is a combined heat and power system.
