Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 8. 1967.
The new lecture theatre block and Weir House extension will be ready for next year. The lecture theatre block, just south of the Easterfield Building, was a few days ahead of schedule on June 20. A report to Council on June 26 on planning and development stated that "unless problems arise in connection with the supply of equipment for building services it appears certain that the block will be in use for the beginning of the 1968 session.
"Preliminary details of study-bedroom furnishings in the Weir House extension have been determined and it is intended to complete and furnish one study-bedroom shortly for final consideration of detail and cost before making a submission for the necessary finance to furnish and equip the building. It is expected that the building itself will be completed by late October or early November," the report states.
The contract documents for the SUB extension are still under scrutiny by the Grants Committee and Government. Preparation of working drawings for the Physics and Earth Sciences building are reported to be proceeding satisfactorily and the aequisition of certain properties in the vicinity of the University are in progress.
