Teesside University plans £300M expansion
Middlesbrough-based Teesside University has announced plans for a wide-ranging £300M expansion scheme.
The work is planned for the next 10 years and will include a number of steel-framed buildings.
Phase One includes a £10M Student Life Building to bring all student-facing services together in one location. It will also include an employability centre and teaching facilities.
The first phase of creating a new home for the Teesside University Business School will see £6M spent to support the establishment’s continuing growth. Phase Two will follow, with a further £15M investment.
There are also plans for a £22.3M National Horizons Centre, a biomedical research, education and teaching facility at the University’s Darlington campus, which will support the industries set to transform the UK economy, including biologics, industrial biotechnology and digital.
The huge programme of investment is said to reinforce Teesside University’s commitment to providing an outstanding student and learning experience, and highlights its ambition to create a campus which is among the very best in the country.
The Campus Master Plan has been developed following extensive consultation with students and staff and will provide the optimum facilities to meet the needs of the 21st century learner.
