University of Leeds: New Physics Building

    Article metrics


    THE new physics building of the University of Leeds represents part of the rebuilding scheme made possible by generous donations from the public during the past several years. It replaces the old ‘sheds’, a temporary glass-roofed structure put up some twenty years ago, and part of one of the original wings in the occupation of the Department of Physics, but under the new scheme destined for demolition. These old laboratories had long been inadequate for their purpose and more than uncomfortable in use. The lecture room accommodation was scanty, the teaching laboratories weather-swept, and the research rooms unfortunately placed.
