Nottingham City Hub

Project overview

Nottingham College campus opened in January 2021, providing 2,000 student places in a state-of-the-art teaching space. The £58.5m project, which started on site in 2018, is the first to be completed by Wates through the Major Works UK framework, and is the result of a partnership between the college, the council, and the local enterprise partnership (LEP). It forms part of the council’s economic regeneration of the city’s Broadmarsh area.

Carole Thorogood, Chair of Governors at Nottingham College comments: 

The building is spectacular both inside and out and I know that staff and students can’t wait to start using it. This is a major investment in education and skills in Nottingham by the college, the local enterprise partnership and the city council.

These state-of-the-art teaching facilities will inspire generations of students and equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to meet the needs of local, national and international employers, helping them and their city to thrive.”
