I’m delighted to invite to you the opening of ‘The Gateway’, the University of Bedfordshire’s landmark new teaching and learning building at our Bedford campus.
The opening takes place on January 30th, from 12:30. There will be opportunities to meet key members of university staff, students and valued partners from the education, civic, research and business communities during a networking lunch. There will also be tours of the new building, led by student ambassadors, which will highlight the great new facilities, the history of the project and the interactive teaching technology used on campus.
The Gateway is integral to the University’s continuing student-focused redevelopment and enhancement across our campuses. It is a £25m project, which offers our students a whole range of new facilities, including high quality teaching spaces, informal learning spaces, lecture theatres (including a Harvard style lecture theatre); as well as a new student services centre.
As well as the Gateway, the redevelopment of our Bedford Campus includes a national standard 300 seat capacity sports arena, and an all-weather, multi-use Astro Turf games area. A new fitness centre is also planned to open in February 2015. Time permitting on the 30th, there will be opportunities for a tour of campus to include these new sports facilities.
I look forward to welcoming you back to the University on January 30th. To register your place, please click on the link above.
