New Academic Building Update

new-building-2014It’s an exciting time at BU; with our state-of-the-art Student Centre taking shape, we are now ready to progress plans to build a new academic building at the Talbot Campus.

A planning application for this Β£22million glass fronted, four-storey building with new lecture theatres, seminar rooms, an attractive atrium and new catering facilities, will be submitted to the local council this month.

Consultation on these plans has resulted in very positive feedback from students, staff and the wider community.

The feedback has also informed our decision to apply to build a new Park and Stride car park off of Gillett Road.

A full summary of the consultation and the feedback received can be viewed online.

We will keep you updated with the progress of the plans.

Please note that the proposed building and associated images are subject to planning permission and may subsequently change, and we will keep you posted as they develop.

BU keeps getting better!

Following hot on the heels of the new Student Centre, we are delighted to announce our plans for a new four storey academic building at the heart of Talbot Campus.

Our vision, BU2018, is focused on creating world-class facilities for our students and staff and this project will deliver just that.

We would love to hear your views and will shortly be commencing a six week consultation process including an exhibition on campus.

Further information on this exciting new development is available on the website.
