Students occupy Metropolitan University

Students at the London Metropolitan University have occupied part of the campus in protest against budget cuts and the proposed relocation of the Cass School of Architecture. 

London Live were not allowed in the building, but did manage to speak to one student involved.

In a statement London Metropolitan University said:

"We are investing £125m to create a new home for The Cass at our Holloway campus, complete with new workshops and studio spaces.We appreciate that some students are concerned about the move, but we'd like to reassure them that the Cass is not closing, nor will its making ethos or successful studio model of teaching be lost. By moving to Islington, the Cass will be in one location as opposed to the faculty's current split between Central House and Commercial Road. We are inviting students to work with us to shape the Cass's future together, and we'd urge those occupying today to accept that offer."
