An investment of GBP 52 million has been made towards the improvements of the University’s Newcastle city centre campus.
The two new state-of-the-art buildings provide major benefits for students pursuing Computing and Information Sciences and, Architecture and Built Environment courses.
Computing and Information Sciences building
Computer Science is one of the University’s strongest research areas with 58% of outputs ranked world-leading or internationally excellent, making Northumbria University the leading Modern University in the North East for research power. Hence, several floors of the new building consist of a mix of research spaces and specialist teaching as well as a ‘Maker Space’, which will allow students to informally collaborate, test and work on new ideas and projects.
Architecture and Built Environment facility
Recognised by external examiners as being among the best in the UK, Architecture at Northumbria has an international reputation for excellence. Northumbria is ranked 3rd in the UK in the Complete University Guide 2018, with the department of Architecture and Built Environment rated in the top 200 in the 2017 QS World University Rankings.
The new studios have been designed by Page\Park Architects – winners of more than 150 national and international awards. Students of Architecture can enjoy a new world-class home in an ambitious extension of the University’s Grade II listed Sutherland Building with the recent developments.
