Bournemouth Uni unveils £100m landmark development

New plans have been launched for £100 million worth of landmark developments to create world class facilities at Bournemouth University (BU).

The schemes aim to create striking gateway buildings at BU’s Lansdowne and Talbot sites, bringing significant investment into Bournemouth and Poole.

Proposals include state-of-the-art facilities for BU’s highly regarded faculties of Media and Communication, Management, Science and Technology and Health and Social Sciences (HSS).

The plans for Talbot include a landmark Poole Gateway Building for the Media and Communication, Management, and Science and Technology faculties.

There will also be transport and accessibility benefits for the wider community including a bus hub on the campus and a new link road off the Boundary roundabout.

Professor John Vinney, BU Vice-Chancellor, said: “Bournemouth University has recently been recognised in the top 200 most international universities in the world.

Our staff and students contribute more than £1 million a day to the south west economy and support just less than one full-time equivalent (FTE) job in the local conurbation for every 7.4 students.”
