                          Ulster University is transforming the higher education
                          landscape with the £264 million landmark development
                          at the Belfast campus.

                          Located in the heart of the vibrant Cathedral Quarter,
                          the visionary new campus is one of the largest higher
                          education capital builds in Europe. It will provide a
                          progressive learning, teaching and research environment
                          supported by the best innovative technology, allowing us
                          to nurture talent and innovation.

                          The new campus, planned to open in 2021/22, will
                          not only transform the student experience as a centre of
                          academic excellence, it will also be publicly accessible
                          and a valuable asset for Belfast as a city in which to live,
                          work, study and do business.

                          As we move forward, the 75,000sqm campus will house
                          up to 15,000 students and staff. By locating our bright,
                          ambitious and creative students in the heart of Northern
                          Ireland’s capital, we will form a lively student community
                          and promote a dynamic environment, which will stimulate
                          and inspire.
