A brand new Student Life Building and Sport Building
Our landmark development is transforming this disused site into a state-of-the-art new Sports Building, a five-storey Student Life Building and attractive open spaces.
The three and a half acre development is regenerating a key gateway site in the heart of the city centre, providing:
The Student Life Building
A five-storey building housing a range of student-facing services, including advice and wellbeing services, careers advice, international exchanges, an area for individual and group study, the Students’ Union (JMSU) and general teaching spaces.
The Sports Building
A two-storey building which will include outstanding facilities such as an eight-court sports hall, two multi-purpose halls and a state-of-the-art gym.
The development will also create attractive public open spaces, which will benefit the local community as well as students and staff.
The development will help to connect our campuses and offer facilities that are easily accessible from both our City Centre Campus and our Mount Pleasant Campus.
The site is in a prime city centre location, with excellent pedestrian and public transport links.
Construction work is scheduled for completion in 2020.
