Answer

Construction work will take place on the new Medical School and Psychology teaching spaces within the Murray Building from Monday 9 January 2023. Building work should finish by 5pm each day so the evening study times within Library@Murray will remain unaffected by construction noise. All building work to the upper levels is due to complete by September 2023.
