Director of Development Julie Hage and her Deputy, Marco Zhang were led round the Dr Lee Shau Kee Building, which will house Wadham’s Access Centre and student accommodation, and the William Doo Undergraduate Centre.
“It is inspiring to see the progress that Beard is making. Standing in the new buildings, you really begin to get a feel for these wonderful facilities. The welcoming atmosphere for applicants, students and staff will make such a difference to College life. And the views across the College site from the new buildings will be second to none,” commented Julie Hage.
“We are encouraging our alumni and friends to support the final phase of our fundraising – £3m to raise by 2020. A donor wall will be positioned prominently in the new buildings with the names of our generous supporters displayed; a gift of £3,000 or more (payable over three years) will put your name on that wall for future generations to see,” she added.
Wadham commissioned the architects AL_A, the studio of RIBA Stirling Prize winner Amanda Levete, to design the buildings in July 2016.
