Springfield Campus Development
The new Springfield Campus is central to the University of Wolverhampton’s £250 million investment plans to enhance the student experience and regenerate the region’s economy.
The flagship project is developing the city’s iconic former Springfield Brewery site and, as a key element of the Midlands Engine, will position Wolverhampton as a national and international hub of excellence for construction and the built environment.
The development project will transform the 12 acre, Grade II listed heritage site into a home for the West Midlands Construction University Technical College, which provides education for up to 600 14-19 year olds, and the new location for the University’s School of Architecture and the Built Environment.
The £11 million Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills, approved by the Black Country LEP, will deliver apprenticeships and training in areas identified as current barriers to growth in the region and high value manufacturing sector. Further projects are in development, including a Brownfield Research Institute.
