Nottingham University: Building was still 'under construction'

Firefighters are currently on site dealing with a major fire at our GSK sustainable chemistry building on Jubilee Campus.

Thankfully, there have been no casualties as this is a building that was still under construction. Our number one priority is to ensure that the fire does not spread to other buildings in the vicinity and we are grateful to the fire teams on site who have worked extremely hard to contain the blaze.

Tomorrow we are due to welcome prospective students and their families to Nottingham for our Open Day and we would like to stress that this is still going ahead as planned.
