University of Manchester School of Mathematics Undergraduate Facilities in the Alan Turing Building

Summary: University of Manchester School of Mathematics
Undergraduate Facilities in the Alan Turing Building
Now that we have all moved into our new home it may be helpful to describe the facilities
in the Alan Turing Building and how we envisage the building being used.
No doubt our use of the building will evolve in the coming weeks as we learn together
how to use it most effectively. The meetings of the Staff-Student Liaison Committee will
provide an opportunity to consider any matters of concern to students. In the meantime
students should contact me if there are major problems about the use of the building.
The Alan Turing Building
The building consists of three `fingers'. Two of these fingers are joined together by several
bridges and between them is an atrium. Originally an `atrium' was the large central hall
of a Roman house and several of the University's recent buildings include this sort of large
open space rising the height of the building. The School of Mathematics occupies the
bottom three floors of this part of the building and the atrium provides a common space
for all of us as we move around the School, walking on the floor of the atrium, across
bridges through the atrium space and along walkways along the sides of the atrium. A
single bridge at third floor level leads to the third finger and this bridge crosses Wilton
Street, which follows the line of an old street from when this was a residential area;
this street is being reopened as a pedestrian way as part of this project. When the
adjacent building work is complete this street will lead through from Upper Brook Street
