Waterside Campus Master plan

The University of Northampton has exciting plans to build a state-of-the-art new Campus in the heart of Northampton’s Waterside Enterprise Zone.

Featuring flexible learning and teaching spaces for the use of innovative technologies, alongside a vibrant mix of leisure and retail facilities, the new campus location and designs focus on the University’s aims of providing an excellent experience for students, staff and the wider community.  These outstanding facilities will attract students from Northampton and around the world to study, work and live within the Town.

The University are pleased to be able to share the design concepts for the academic buildings and landscaping options proposed for the Waterside Campus.

The University will be holding a number of open sessions for members of the public to view the design concepts at the Resource Room, Ground Floor, St John’s Halls of Residence St John’s Street, Northampton, NN1 1DH on:

Monday 13 October: 5pm until 8pm

Wednesday 15 October: 10am until 2pm.

These events are an opportunity to view the building designs and styles, share your thoughts and feedback on the concepts.

Vice Chancellor, Nick Petford, said: “We are delighted to be in a positon to share the designs for the academic buildings and landscaping options proposed for the Waterside Campus. The development of our new campus is the largest development of any university campus currently underway and injects an investment into Northampton of over £330million; it is an exciting time for the University and for the region.

“These consultation events signal the final stages of developing our detailed planning application, which are to be presented to Northampton Borough Council’s planning committee in November.

“Infrastructure works will be scheduled to commence in 2015, completing the campus ready for students joining the University in September 2018.”
