It’s August 2019 and it’s been 4 years since the ground breaking but we’re finally moving in to our new campus and we thought you’d like a preview. We’re still unpacking and there are boxes everywhere so forgive the mess.

This 10,000m2 development features state-of-the art design. Our new facility provides realistic working environments, so you can access the best resources and equipment – just like the professionals. Student facilities are the centre of the new building, including the learning resource centre, and the café-canteen. You’ll also enjoy landscaped outdoor spaces and sports and recreation facilities too.

Spaces are still available on a lot of courses. You can apply at

The music and sound effects are from the Youtube Audio Library.
