A glimpse into how Preston’s university campus is to look following a £200million revamp has been released.

The University of Central Lancashire has put together a fly-through of how plans for the city’s campus are progressing.

It features the new science and engineering building which is due to begin construction on the current Foster building car park – just off the Adelphi roundabout.

UCLan say they hope to have the new public square and building finished by 2020.
