Northumbria University has invested more than GBP 250 million in its campus facilities over the past decade. Most recently, this has included a GBP 52 million investment in two new state-of-the-art facilities to provide major benefits for Computing and Information Sciences as well as Architecture and Built Environment students.
Computing and Information Sciences Building
Supporting one of the university’s strongest research areas, Northumbria has spent over GBP 7 million on the new Computing and Information Sciences Building. The facility consists of multiple research spaces and specialist teaching areas, as well as a ‘Maker Space’ to encourage students to collaborate, test and work on new ideas. 58% of outputs in the department are considered world-leading or internationally excellent, and the investment has only enhanced the facilities and opportunities available to students.
Architecture and Built Environment Facility
With a renowned architecture school and an international reputation for excellence, the department now has access to state-of-the-art studios designed by award-winning architects. The world-class home is an extension of the university’s Grade II listed Sutherland Building and gives the school a world-class home to enhance the student experience.
