Teesside University has unveiled a £300m masterplan to transform its campus in phases over a period of 10 years.
Under the first phase of development, a £10m Student Life Building will be built that will feature an employability centre and teaching facilities.
Additionally, a new home for the Teesside University Business School will also be created with an investment of £6m. In second phase, the university will further invest £15m on the centre.
The university has set aside nearly £83m to be invested to transform the student accommodation, including new purpose-built accommodation on the Woodlands site, a full refurbishment of King Edward’s Square, and refurbishment and modernisation of Parkside Village.
Also, £22.3m will be spent on National Horizons Centre, a biomedical research, education and teaching facility at the University’s Darlington campus.
As per the blueprint, developments will be carried out in phases, with first phase is already underway with the final stage of the £7m library refurbishment and the development of the former Gazette building on Borough Road.
Teesside University vice-chancellor and CEO 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.”
