Brief history

Our roots go back to the Wolverhampton and Staffordshire Technical College built in 1931 in the grounds of the deanery of St Peter’s Collegiate Church. A merger with a local art college followed and Wolverhampton Poly was born in 1969.
More mergers with teacher training institutions came in the 1980s and we became a university in 1992.
