New construction Faculty of Science
Leiden University will be constructing a new building for the Faculty of Science, spread over three phases.
Phase 1 covers the Science Campus of 45,000 m2 and has already been made operational. The campus consists of three wings connected by an atrium.
The entire Gorlaeus Building must be completed by 2026, providing a total of about 100,000 m2. All the Faculty’s departments and institutes will be housed under one roof. The new building is thus meant to encourage encounters and interaction between institutes and educational units, between researchers and students and between different fields of research.
At the moment, we are working on the structural design of the second phase.
