Space change process

The space needs of departments within the FoM and the Faculty itself change over time and as a result space allocation is a dynamic process. No change to ownership, configuration or status of space within this Faculty can be authorised without completion of this form and confirmation of Faculty approval to proceed.

Departments must submit requests for additional space, to divest of space, to refurbish or change the use of space or to move groups between buildings and campuses via the FoM space change SharePoint request form. When additional space or refurbishments are being requested a business case will need to be included.

Following submission of the request, it is directed to the appropriate Faculty committee for review. Queries regarding space changes and request submissions should be sent to fom.space.change@imperial.ac.uk.

For more information regarding the space change processes in the Faculty of Medicine, please see the FoM Space Management Framework on SharePoint.


Faculty of Medicine Space Vision

The Faculty is undergoing an ambitious space programme to contribute to the delivery of the Faculty of Medicine 2024 Vision. This involves the consolidation of our existing dispersed footprint into cutting edge facilities and environments whilst still retaining necessary linkages for clinical research and teaching. The programme includes significant capital investment and will create the following new hubs and builds:

  • A new Medical School hub at Charing Cross
  • A new MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences Building at Hammersmith
  • A new School of Public Health building at White City
  • A Biomedical Engineering Hub at White City with FoE
  • A cross-Faculty hub for the Institute of Infection in South Kensington
  • Cardio-Respiratory Research Hub at Hammersmith with ICHT

Together with several other refurbishment projects, this will deliver:

  • Research concentration at Hammersmith/White City and South Kensington which will exploit the multi-disciplinary, inter-Faculty and translation opportunities on these campuses
  • New educational and student facilities at Charing Cross while retaining a medical school base on the South Kensington Campus
  • A more coherent, efficient use of our estate

The delivery of this programme is managed and overseen via the Education Space Group (chaired by the vice-Dean for Education), the FoM Space Programme Steering Group (chaired by the Vice-Dean for Research) and the FoM Space Programme Board (chaired by the Dean) which have representatives from across the Faculty.
