Current Projects

We are continually improving our estate and environment to ensure that we deliver high quality learning and living space for our students.

Each year our internal Design and Projects team have their work cut out with the continual improvements we make about the campus.

Our projects range from new builds, major refurbishments through to smaller re-fit works and redecorations. These are all done with the focus of ensuring that the University continues to provide places for excellence for its growing student population.
