Introducing ‘The Barn’
Students at the Sutton Bonington campus are enjoying the newly developed amenities building, which will now be known as The Barn.
The Barn is set at the heart of the Sutton Bonington campus and includes a dining hall, common room, graduate centre, faith rooms, student services and a range of other facilities over three floors. The building was in need of a re-vamp to make room for the increasing campus population and brings all the student services under one roof.
The building has also been designed to encourage student flow around the campus and to make the most of the views surrounding the landscape.
Professor Sir David Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor of the University said: “As our award winning campuses continue to grow and develop, it is essential that we incorporate new buildings that fit comfortably in our landscapes and reflect the needs of our students. ‘The Barn’ is an outstanding new addition to our Sutton Bonington Campus. It complements and enriches the look and feel of Sutton Bonington, whilst providing our students with a superb facility which they will be able to enjoy for years to come.”
