The Olisa Library named

Lord Sainsbury, Chancellor of the University, named The Olisa Library on 5 July at a special ceremony attended by donors Ken and Julia Olisa.

Other events on 5 July to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Fitzwilliam on the present site included a reception and dinner for alumni from 1963, Fellows, students and staff, and anĀ exhibition. The Chancellor also cut turf to mark the building of a new extension to improve kitchen and dining facilities. The first students and Fellows moved into the new buildings at Fitzwilliam designed by Sir Denys Lasdun in 1963.

The Olisa Library, designed by Edward Cullinan Architects (now Cullinan Studio) was opened in 2010.
