Really enjoyed this one - a total surprise finding out it was relatively close to me.



Zoology University Building




I remember seeing the pictures of the interior of the site, and I spent a good few hours working out it's location from the building's you could make out out of the windows. Apparently some other explorers were doing the same, as I was invited to come along with the next day to check it out.



The exterior, almost indistinguishable as being derelict

Immediately inside, we found a room filled with animal bones, relating to this disused building's nature as a zoology section of the university

Labs and classrooms

From what I'm aware, the building has been stripped of all items, so it appears that some work is going into it, rather than it sitting as a secret as normal university life goes on around it.



Sorry for the lack of text, I sprained my hand last week playing football and it's recovering slowwwwly.



Here's the documentary styled video from the site. I cover the past, present and future through cinematics and narration:







Thanks for reading :)

Gorgeous building that - like so many of that era.

That place would make me panic. I'd be too scared to open a door in case it was still a live site.
Looks like a really interesting place though. The design would have heaps of hidden rooms and damp dark cellars. I'll bet there's some interesting relics buried away in the quieter areas.

Thanks for sharing.
