Investing for the future

The College has, over recent years, received more than £30 million in capital investment which includes the remodelling of our Rochdale Campus, the Technology Centre at Middleton Campus and our new state-of-the-art Learning Resource Centres. More importantly, we are continually investing and refurbishing our estate with the fantastic Riverside Salon, licensed Riverside Restaurant, the Hopwood Theatre and our popular Sports Arena & Park. To ensure we are always offering the best facilities to our students - and the public - we are always looking for new ways to evolve our offering, including the expansion of our Centre for Life Sciences.
