The Pan-Atlantic University is a private non-profit educational institution in Lagos (Nigeria) in West Africa. The university originally opened as Lagos Business School (LBS) in 1991. In May 2013, its name was changed to the Pan-Atlantic University. The Ajah campus was completed in 2003, and work began on the Ibeju-Lekki campus in 2010. This project refers to the latter.
This urban masterplan is situated on a 98,560 ha plot on the outskirts of Lagos. With space planned for more than 50 buildings, the campus comprises university buildings, a library, a museum, a chapel, sports facilities, and much more. Approximately 20% of the total university complex has now been built. Buildings such as the academic complex, LBS, EDC, two halls of residence (for students and lecturers) and SST are currently under construction and have all been designed by Mas Millet Architects in collaboration with Laborda Associates.
The Ibeju-Lekki Campus is an ambitious project, but the work is being carried out on a carefully controlled budget. Our aim is to produce high quality architecture and urban design, while adapting our plans to local construction methods and the available labour force, etc.
With regard to the outdoor spaces, 30-metre-wide roads have been built with parking on both sides and pedestrian crossings covered with pergolas to protect students from the two main climatic features in the region: torrential rain and harsh sunlight. Meanwhile, the sports facilities include an athletics track, two outdoor football pitches and one covered pitch, six tennis courts and two paddle tennis courts, a swimming pool and a large covered building for campus events.
