University College Birmingham Mcintyre House
McIntyre House is the University’s new purpose-built centre for undergraduate and postgraduate study.
Opened in September 2014, the building’s stunning design is underpinned by the latest technology, a high-specification fit out, impressive functionality and cutting-edge environmental features.
McIntyre House, on Holland Street, has two 126-seat lecture theatres and a 250-seat flagship lecture theatre in addition to smaller seminar rooms, tutorial studies and private meeting rooms.
There are also informal break-out spaces on all floors for informal study and discussion.
ThinkSpace, on the ground floor, has glazed study pods for group work, such as presentation preparation and project planning. In total, there are more than 120 PCs available for students to use in modern, comfortable surroundings.
The ground-floor also has EatSpace, McIntyre House’s café, which serves breakfasts, lunches, snacks and drinks and has a Starbucks concession. EatSpace adjoins a landscaped courtyard – a green lung in the heart of the city’s famous Jewellery Quarter.
An open-air ambiance is mirrored on the top floor where there is a terrace – with seating, planting and a water feature – offering panoramic views across the city centre. The main site at Summer Row is so near it is clearly visible from the roof terrace.
