Works underway or completed
Major investment in our estate is already underway with:
- the £59m Urban Sciences Building, opening September 2017
- ground-breaking fabric struture The Key
- our marine station at the Port of Blyth
- our next generation of High Performance Computing
The University farms are already focal points of research and teaching. These will be developed into national centres of excellence incorporating a grid-connected methane-generating anaerobic digestor and C-DIAL - an advanced laboratory funded by Centre of Innovation Excellence in Livestock.
Schemes in the near future
The University already has plans for new-builds on Science Central to host:
- the £30m National Innovation Centre for Data
- the £40m National Innovation Centre for Ageing
- a £34m Learning, Teaching and Conference Centre
On the existing campus, we will adjust school office spaces to give students easier access to Professional Support Services.
The Bedson Building will have a new entrance to improve accessibility for all students and staff. Students will be involved in determining the function and design of a new £450k student IT facility.
