WestLAN’s team of technicians installed over 1500 Brandrex Leviton CAT6A F/FTP Data Points and 1.5km of Leviton 32 Core Singlemode Fibre for the new Student Hub in the Windle Building. The Windle Building is one of the oldest buildings in the centre of the campus. The building has been conserved and transformed and has opened for the first time as a new centre designed to streamline student services and support student learning.
The Hub extends over five floors, combining student services at a single point of contact for 26,000 undergraduate and post-graduate students. The historic 170-year-old Windle Medical building was previously used for training generations of doctors.
