£100m investment to transform the University


The University is set to invest over £100m in the main Brayford campus over the next decade, with a vision to create the finest city centre campus in the UK.

The plan is to enhance the existing estate by adding new lecture halls, laboratories, seminar rooms, shops, cafes and offices.

Work is well underway and many changes were made over the summer with an unprecedented amount of construction and refurbishment on campus.

 Just some of the changes to the campus include: 

  • Conservation & Restoration, Creative Advertising, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Illustration and Interactive Design are now based in the striking new extension to the Architecture Building, bringing students and staff in these subject areas into the heart of the Brayford campus.
  • The Library has been extended to include new social learning space and seminar rooms.
  • The Library square has been beautifully landscaped.
  • Two new mezzanine floors have been installed in the Main Admin Building to ensure more social learning space for students. The Jackson Lecture Theatre has been expanded and new entrance lobbies have been constructed on the east and west wings. The third floor also has a new study space and a newly decked outdoor terrace. 

In addition, the Schools of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry will soon be based in the new facilities at the Sir Joseph Banks Laboratories and Minster House, part of the new multi-million pound Science and Innovation Park being created with Lincolnshire Co-operative. Construction work for the first phase is due to finish next summer. 

And remember being late for lectures after waiting for train after train at the barriers? The construction of the new footbridge across the railway is due to start this November.
