Sheffield University unveil ‘Masterplan’ to improve campusBy Editor
Yesterday was a big day in the lives of the good people at Sheffield University, as plans for a brand new campus were revealed
Entitled 'The Masterplan', the arrangements have been set about it to create a more 'unified, sustainable and green campus which will enhance the experience for students, staff, visitors and the wider community, and integrate seamlessly with the rest of the city'
The university believes it is the right time to commit to the venture due to its revered standing in the world, and therefore they would like the architecture to represent the institution's quality.
Futhermore, the plans are to be implemented in a bid to reach out to other academic schools like Sheffield Hallam
University by improving connections via the city's award winning 'Gold Route.'
The Masterplan aims to establish better links with the wider community, particularly with the Gold Route which connects the campus to the city, Sheffield Hallam University and Midland Station.
Professor Sir Keith Burnett, who fills the role of Vice-Chancellor at the University of Sheffield has remarked on his excitement. He said: “Developing an estate which allows us to provide world-class teaching and learning facilities for our students and staff is certainly a major priority. But so too is the desire to be firmly part of our city and to create a safe and welcoming environment which encourages people from all walks of life to see it as their University."
