Approximately 650 m2 of greenhouses adjoin the B&G Building. The greenhouses are divided into teaching and research complexes.

Tropical Greenhouse

The Tropical House is the largest greenhouse in the teaching complex. It contains the main plant display area and is open for greenhouse visitors. A short circular path leads visitors past various labeled specimen plants and a small pond. Any groups larger than three people should contact the Facilities Manager to book a time to visit.

Three members of staff maintain the greenhouses.

These facilities are provided free of charge to users in the Biology Department. Outside users are welcome and should contact the Facilities Manager for details.
