Project for University of Ulster to accommodate up to 15,000 students and staff

Architect Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ design for the University of Ulster’s Belfast City Campus has received planning permission.

The campus is part of a £250m project that will provide 70,000m2 in the city.

The buildings on the campus will accommodate up to 15,000 students and staff.

Stephen Farry, minister for employment and learning, said: “This will allow the university to move forward with its plans to create an excellent environment for students and staff alike.

“The economic potential for the area is enormous, not just with the jobs associated with the building phase, but with the spending power of the huge number of people visiting the campus on a daily basis, and the opportunity for local businesses to serve the needs of the university.”
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ won a competition to design the campus in January 2012.
