NTU opens ‘Heart of the Campus’

Nottingham Trent University completes multi-million pound development at its Clifton Campus

Nottingham Trent University has undergone a multi-million pound development at its Clifton Campus, with the creation of new state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities and social space. 

The new facilities have been designed to provide a high-quality environment to inspire students for generations and the latest phase of the development.

The major transformation, being called the ‘Heart of the Campus’, includes two new buildings – the ‘Pavilion’ and the ‘Teaching and Learning’ building – along with landscaped outdoor spaces. 

The Teaching and Learning building accommodates up to 800 students in three lecture theatres, with flat and tiered spaces to suit teaching requirements, along with eight teaching rooms and two seminar rooms.

The Pavilion offers two levels of social study space, which include enclosed learning ‘pods’ and collaborative booths for group study. In addition, a barista and seating area are available for students and staff to relax and socialise in the communal areas.

A link bridge adjoins the two buildings whilst ‘The Plaza’, a landscaped central outdoor area which features excellent Wi-Fi access, attractive planting and seating areas, can be found in front of the buildings.

Nottingham Trent University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Edward Peck, said: “The ‘Heart of the Campus’ development provides us with two fantastic new buildings that greatly enhance facilities for students at our Clifton Campus. 

“The development shows our commitment to providing an inspiring teaching, learning and research environment as well as an excellent student experience: it has been extremely well-received by students and staff alike.’

We have been working extremely hard to make sure the quality of teaching and the range of facilities at Nottingham Trent University are second-to-none and, in the past 10 years, we have invested more than £350 million in our estate and equipment.”
