Bob Walter MP tours BU’s new Student Centre building

North Dorset MP Bob Walter has toured the site of a new Student Centre building at Bournemouth University.

He joined representatives from the university’s leadership and estates teams for a tour of the six-storey building on Talbot Campus, which is due to open next April.

When completed, the Student Centre will be the new home of the Students’ Union at Bournemouth University (SUBU) and its Nerve* media outlets.

It will also feature social learning spaces, access points for student support services and a café.

Mr Walter also met with BU’s Vice-Chancellor Professor John Vinney and other members of the university’s executive team, to learn more about the work taking place at BU.

He said: “Bournemouth University has gone from strength to strength since it was established just over 20 years ago, and now has a well-deserved reputation for research, innovation and, perhaps most importantly, getting its graduates into work.

“BU obviously has an important role in the county’s economic and cultural life and has, I know, recently played a significant part in the development of Dorset LEP’s Strategic Economic Plan.”
