Cambridge: New ARU Campus

Plans for a new Anglia Ruskin University campus in the centre of Cambridge have been approved.

Cambridge City Council approved proposals for the new buildings [artist's impression - right] on Young Street yesterday (Wednesday).

They will replace the derelict Cambridge College for Further Education buildings.

Students will be taught nursing and midwifery qualifications at the new campus, with the idea that they can work in hospitals including Addenbrooke's and The Rosie Maternity once qualified.

The first phase of the building will provide teaching space such as wards, operating theatres, classrooms and laboratories.

The second phase of the building will include a 200 seat lecture theatre, seminar rooms and administration space.

The buildings will be linked by a glazed walkway, and a third building will provide mainly administration space.

The plans also include 276 bicycle parking spaces.
