Faculty of Divinity
The building combines a mixture of individual offices for Lecturers and Professors, common rooms, lecture and seminar rooms.
The rotunda contains the public rooms of the Faculty. It is crowned by a wonderfully light and airy double-height circular library occupying the top floor and mezzanine. It provides plenty of well-lit reading spaces, including many around the perimeter with views over the Sidgwick campus.
Out of the rotunda a segment is cut to create a new square with the entrances to the existing History Faculty and the new building in its two southern corners.
The building expresses and encourages the Faculty's sense of collegiality and community between teaching staff, students and researchers, with contrasting and balanced spaces.
The Divinity building was opened by HM The Queen in November 2000.
