29 September 2018 (10.30-14.30)
A controversial building since its inception - once considered the ugliest building in Edinburgh, Appleton Tower recently underwent a thorough refurbishment with a new entrance and enhanced facilities. Home to the University’s world-leading School of Informatics since the Cowgate fire in 2002, it’s currently used for teaching while research has moved to the Informatics Forum across the road. The state-of-the-art study suite on Level 9 offers amazing views of the city.
Activities: Visual displays on historical information about the School of Informatics, student stewards/volunteers at key points to offer insight into student life, video/audio presentations. 30 minute tours will take place hourly at 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 13:30 and 14:30.
