From September students at the University of Central Lancashire will begin learning within the building which has an acre of glass in the 652 panes surrounding it.

Chief operating officer Michael Ahern said: “The EIC is set to be a real asset to the University and the region, bringing enormous educational and economic benefits now and for generations to come. It really is an impressive building that forms a cornerstone of our masterplan development, providing our region with access to top of the range facilities, research expertise and student talent.

Everything will be in place and ready for when our student return for the new academic year in September.”
