Prestonians are being invited to discover what works is taking place for the city’s university’s £200million campus masterplan.


The University of Central Lancashire is redeveloping the area around the Adelphi roundabout and building a new £60million student centre.

Held at UCLan’s Harrington Building the event will see representatives from Balfour Beatty, who will undertake the highways work, Bowmer + Kirkland, who will build the student centre, and Lancashire County Council who have given permission for the highways changes.

Chief operating officer at UCLan Michael Ahern said: “We’re keen that the community understands and sees how important these projects are not just to the University but to Preston and how they will act as catalysts for further regeneration of the City.

“The developments have been in the planning for a significant amount of time and through in-depth consultation we have taken on board feedback and created a scheme that Preston can be proud of.

“It’s vital to us as an organisation that our stakeholders are fully aware of what is in progress and I would like people to come along and learn more about how these vital elements of the Masterplan will come to fruition.”
