Major Investment Programme
We’ve embarked on a major investment plan and recently added two exciting landmark buildings to our campus. The latest addition is the high-tech home for our Faculty of Engineering and Computing (pictured top right), which opened in September 2012.
It’s designed to be the most advanced technological learning space in the UK, and probably the world, and features the highest standards of sustainability and creative learning in a beautiful and inspirational space.
In August 2011, we launched TheHub - a thriving and vibrant home for the Students’ Union and a whole host of services for students. TheHub is the new heart of the campus a place for students to meet, study and socialise. It’s one of the greenest buildings on campus and sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design; construction and operation.
