Handed over this week, the new City Hub will be fully operational from January, providing space for 2,000 students and 200 staff. The City Hub, with state-of-the-art teaching facilities, forms part of Nottingham City Council regeneration scheme to boost the city’s economy and provide the local community with amenities including a restaurant, café and performing arts centre.
Carole Thorogood, Chair of Governors at Nottingham College, said:
“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.
“The full economic impact of the coronavirus is still to be felt. But education and this college will be vital to rebuilding the economy and people’s livelihoods by providing excellence in education and a route to exceptional opportunities for the City and its people.”
