Future Campus...

 

In 2018 the University will move to a brand new state of the art £330m Waterside Campus alongside the river Nene, a 5 minute walk east of the Town Centre.

The existing 58 acre brownfield site will be transformed into a vibrant and social site, attracting students and visitors from across the country.

The new campus will cement the University’s reputation as an institution that is dedicated to adding value to society.
