Edge Hill University 2018
This visualisation of the campus shows potential developments over the next few years. The fully-developed campus will be one of the finest in the UK, providing a high-quality landscaped environment for study, research and student living, integrated with arts, sporting and recreational facilities. Watch our video about new facilities being created right now:
A new sports complex is currently underway to the east of the Ormskirk Campus.
Watch a fly-through:
Facilities will include running tracks, rugby, hockey and football pitches, athletics field, netball and tennis courts and a trim trail with exercise stations. A single storey building will accommodate an eight-court sports hall with viewing gallery for basketball, netball, badminton, five-a-side football and general sports use, a 25-metre swimming pool, a 100-station fitness suite, aerobics studio, health suite with sauna and steam rooms, a café and lounge area.
New ecological features and wildlife habitats will be created, including mixed-woodland areas and footpaths linking to Ruff Wood, wildflower meadows, open grassland and a new wildlife pond, and structural screen planting and hedgerow replacement. The whole development will incorporate sustainable drainage and low carbon design and building technologies.
A further 230 en-suite rooms opened in September 2013 to enhance the experience for the increasing numbers of students who wish to live on campus.
