In 2013 the Cruciform Library, Cluster and adjacent Seminar Rooms were identified to be refurbished to create a welcoming and vibrant space at the heart of Gower Street, fulfilling the aspirations of the UCL Masterplan. 

The new student hub involves significant structural alterations to the Grade II Listed building, with the insertion of a new precast concrete feature staircase set within a contemporary glazed enclosure and the creation of a range of settings for teaching and learning, blending heritage with contemporary design.
