You may have noticed that campus has been changing a lot recently. We have been busy making our facilities even better. Just for you.
The heart of campus has been given a new look for your arrival on campus. The ground floor has new seating areas perfect to socialise, work or relax. With murals, new chairs, plants and colour. The Hub is now an an even more inviting social place.
As well as this, we have a new Morrison’s store and the EH Market. EH Market has replaces the Sages’ Hatch and will give you different food outlets throughout the day. There’s always something new, with caterers for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Brand new SU
Our beloved Students’ Union facility is getting an upgrade. The new space will house flexible indoor spaces which can be used for events both day and night. Everything from society rooms to informal open spaces and the technology to create more interactive experiences. The social spaces will also spill over to the outdoors. Get ready for an outdoor cinema, food markets as well as places to meet up, relax and belong. It is going to be great.
State-of-the-art Life Sciences facilities
Our new Life Sciences building will be ready in 2024. Investing in your future, this building will help to make advances in the University’s Biomedical research. With work being done in areas such as cancer, neurobiology, genetic skin conditions and ageing.
The new building will house classrooms, a large research and teaching lab, as well as chemistry, microbiology and molecular biology labs.
Even more accommodation
We are proud to have been awarded Best University Accommodation in the UK on Uni Compare. As well as our halls being voted in the top 10 nationally in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2023. Both of these awards are a result of students like you voting. We have invested £23.6m to add another 232 en-suite rooms to our campus. Now even more students can enjoy our outstanding living experience.
The four-storey building will not only include new bedrooms. The ground floor will also include a laundrette and incorporate retail spaces.
The new developments will contribute to a campus atmosphere that will inspire you, both academically and socially. Providing space to breathe and develop your potential.
