Teesside University has launched a programme of investment which will see its campus undergo a £300m transformation over the next 10 years.
The ambitious Campus Masterplan provides a blueprint for how the campus will develop over the next decade. Phase 1 includes a £10m building to bring all student services together in one location, a new home for the Teesside University Business School, and a biomedical research facility.
The plans have been developed following extensive consultation with students and staff. Developments will be completed in structured phases, with phase 1 already underway. The final stage of the £7m library refurbishment is currently in progress and the development of the former Gazette building on Borough Road, which the University acquired earlier this year, is also underway.
Vice-Chancellor and chief executive professor Paul Croney said: “The University is delighted to launch its Campus Masterplan.
'This programme of investment will transform the campus over the next decade and reinforces our commitment to providing an outstanding student and learning experience.
'We look forward to continuing to work with our partners in the Tees Valley and North East, to make Middlesbrough an exciting and appealing destination for students from across the world.”
Chairman Alastair MacColl said: “The plans for the campus over the next ten years are outstanding and these are incredibly exciting times for Teesside University.
“We are committed to investing in our estate to further enhance the experiences of our students, businesses we work with and the communities we serve.”
Chief operating officer Malcolm Page added: “There has been some incredible success with the development of our award-winning campus in recent years – but the University cannot stand still.
“We will continue to invest and are excited to be launching this next phase of development. We believe this Masterplan will help to create a campus environment to rival any in the sector.”
