Campus Developments

EHU-Building5-1024x724Edge Hill University is continuing to develop its state-of-the-art campus to fulfil its vision of a visually inspiring, sustainable environment.

The flagship £17million Creative Edge building opened in September 2013 and includes industry-standard facilities for students studying courses in Media, Film, Animation, Advertising and Computing.


The transformation will continue in 2015 with phase two of the new £30 million sports complex which will ensure students, staff and the local community enjoy some of the best sports facilities in the country. Plans include a new Sports Centre with a 25m swimming pool, 100-station fitness suite, sauna, steam room, aerobics studio, and a multi-court sports hall with viewing gallery. The University’s commitment to sustainability has been recognised with a string of green awards and as part of this vision all new buildings on campus incorporate low carbon technologies and energy efficient lighting, heating and glazing.

This year will also see the completion of new additions to Edge Hill’s on-campus accommodation. Construction has begun on phase 10 of the residential building programme which will see 144 new bedrooms constructed within the central campus, close to the main building and the existing Forest Court accommodation block.

“The end result will see a campus that truly matches, in both quality and scale, the very best in the United Kingdom.” Dr John Cater, Vice-Chancellor.

Work begins on exciting campus developments

The start of 2017 will see work commence on several state of the art new buildings for the Edge Hill campus.

The £36m development will include a new Library and Student Services Centre plus accommodation for 250 senior students, located on the site of the University’s old running track.

First to be completed will be the new residences – three and four storey townhouses comprising 263 bedrooms. These will be available to second year, third year and postgraduate students, meaning more of these students can be housed on campus rather than renting privately outside of the University. The residences will be completed in two phases, with the first opening in time for 2017 occupancy and the second in 2018.

The four-storey Library and Student Services Centre, planned for completion in summer 2018, will be much larger than the current library facility and feature a range of different study areas, social spaces and much-improved electronic facilities, as well as easier access to the University’s entire book collection.
