College Opens New 'Hub'

A new 34 million pound development's being officially opened at Southampton City College.

It's called The Hub - and it features a professional theatre with 240 seats, a commercial restaurant and a hair & beauty salon. It also has TV and radio studios with a million pounds worth of equipment in them.

Ten years ago City College had poor accommodation and a poor success rate.

After a £48m investement to redevelop the campus, the college is now in the top 10% in the country.

The most recent investement is the £34m for the 'hub' building. £20m of this has come from the LSC (Learning and Skills Council).

The facilities form part of the college's third phase development of the site for learners of all ages, the local community and local businesses.

On June 8 the college will celebrate the college's new building. Around 200 people are expected to attend the event.
