The Sibson Building: A New Home for Kent Business School


Kent Business School are pleased to announce the naming of their new academic home as the Sibson Building, named so after the University’s third Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robin Sibson.

The naming of the Sibson Building follows the precedent of naming academic buildings after former Vice-Chancellors: The Templeman Library and the Ingram Building.

Professor Robin Sibson is a statistician, who is best known for his research on natural neighbour interpolation.

Sibson was Vice-Chancellor from September 1994 to August 2001 and led the University through a period of significant change: including creating the current structure of schools and departments; beginning an expansion of student numbers and widening participation with links to associate colleges; and developing higher education provision in Medway leading to the creation of a new campus.

KBS will be moving into the new Sibson Building in early 2017, a new home that encapsulates our academic values and identity.

Construction of the Sibson building began in January 2015. The building will be jointly occupied with the School of Mathematics, Statistics & Actuarial Science (SMSAS).
