Tavistock Place

The new building tucked behind Tavistock Place (TP2) was designed by BMJ Architects with input from staff representatives. Completed in 2023, staff from the Faculty of Public Health and Policy and a number of professional services departments are based there.

Design work has now begun with internal representatives, architects, contractors - and in consultation with the local community - to transform the interior of the original Tavistock Place building which fronts the street (TP1). This phase of our building improvements project will create modern, dedicated teaching and learning space for students, aiming for completion in 2025. Find out more on the Tavistock Place update page

Planning permission and community

LSHTM is working closely with all necessary regulatory authorities including Camden Council, as well as representatives of the local community, staff and other stakeholders on our building projects. 

A new draft Construction Management Plan (CMP) for the TP1 redevelopment is now ready to be viewed by the public. We welcome your comments and suggestions. Please send these to by the end of Sunday 17 September 2023 if you wish them to be included in our submission to Camden Planning. The document will remain live throughout the project and you can send your comments and suggestions at any time for consideration by the team and our community partners.


For further information about the developments please email the Community Engagement Coordinator Vicky Ratcliffe -

Keppel Street

A phased programme of improvements works is under way at our Keppel Street building within a masterplan designed by Ian Ritchie Architects. The first phases involved building new laboratories and improved infrastructure inside the relatively modern North Courtyard building. The project has now moved on to investment in the original 1929 building to reconfigure and refurbish offices and social areas for long term sustainability.
