The second phase of the construction of this new faculty with state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities has now been completed. The first section with 46,000 square meters was already put into use in September 2016. In the second construction period, the Gorlaeus was given an extra lab wing, an education/office building, a library, a brasserie and a number of rooms for study associations.
The building has also been given its beautiful, characteristic entrance on the Campusplein, along the Einsteinweg. With this new entrance, the Gorlaeus building and the iconic lecture halls together form the 'face' of the faculty. When the third phase is completed in 2026, a large part of the institutes and faculty services will be under one roof.
Characteristic of the building is the comb structure, with three wings that are connected by an atrium with vides as high as the building itself. In this central hall there will be the communal facilities, such as the café, but also the seminar rooms, practical rooms and meeting rooms. There are also seating areas with lounge sofas and work tables for self-study, for example.
