Next phase of Manvers Street plan unveiled

The University is intending to develop a new, flexible learning zone and a city-centre hub for student-facing services within the former Bath Police station in Manvers Street.

The latest phase of plans to develop the Manvers Street site has been announced

Following a £4.5 million refurbishment programme the Manvers Street building will house a new learning zone providing students with opportunities for independent study, group work and skills training in a convenient city-centre location. 

With the majority of our students living off-campus, the need to travel to campus will be reduced. A hub for student-facing services also forms part of the plan.  

The refurbishment programme will begin shortly and the new facilities will be fully operational by the start of the 2016/17 academic year.

Further details of the services to be located in Manvers Street including opening hours will be communicated in due course.

Professor Bernie Morley, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost, said:

"Locating this new learning zone and services used by our students closer to where many of them are living will further enhance the help and support we are able to offer. This expansion of our activities in the city will also make an important contribution to the continued regeneration of the area around Manvers Street."
