Sheffield Hallam unveils £30 million spending plans | 22 November 2011
Sheffield Hallam University have announced plans to spend £25 million on a new building, sheffieldtelegraph.co.uk reports.
As part of a wider investment, SHU is to spend £25 million on the new teaching space; as well as £4 million on hiring more teaching staff and £500,000 on research staff.
The new state-of-the-art building, set to be situated on the Collegiate Crescent Campus, will house a 220-seat lecture hall – as well as flexible teaching space. It will predominantly be used by the Faculty of Development and Society.
Provided all goes to plan, parts of the building are set to open in September 2014, although others are still subject to planning permission.
SHU’s newest development comes as a response to requests by students to have more dedicated one-to-one teaching time with their lecturers and tutors.
Speaking to fm-world.co.uk of the plans, university vice chancellor Philip Jones explained: “Thanks to careful financial management the University has been operating at a surplus in recent years and we have decided that now is the right time to further invest in our people and our infrastructure.
“All of these new developments have been designed to make a real difference to our students and to further enhance their time at Sheffield Hallam.”
