Your chance to take part in the consultation process

    aerial of Adelphi SquareHi,

    The University has launched the public engagement phase of its Campus Masterplan proposals which involve a £200 million investment to create a unified, green and sustainable campus over the next ten years.

    Early stage developments will take place from January 2016 meaning that current students will benefit from the plans and therefore your input and feedback on the proposals is important.

    In addition to 64,000 Masterplan information cards now being distributed to residents and businesses in the PR1 and PR2 postcodes, the University’s dedicated Masterplan webpages are now live at .

    These pages will provide full access to a downloadable version of the Masterplan draft consultation report as well as a feedback questionnaire for the submission of your views and ideas in relation to the proposals.

    Over the next month face-to-face, public engagement drop-in sessions are taking place on campus and within the City centre where, along with the general public, UCLan students can come and talk to the University about any aspects of the proposals. Full details of these events including times, dates and venues, are also available on the Masterplan website.

    Please take part in this consultation process. I think this is a brilliant opportunity for UCLan to develop the campus into something really special but that cannot be done without vital input from UCLan students.

      SSShhh... Quiet Please!

      A reminder for those of you who enjoy studying in the Library.

      We are already starting to receive complaints from library users.
      We don’t expect total silence (except, of course, in the Silent Study room) but do expect individual or group study to be carried out quietly throughout the whole of the Library building, showing respect to other Library users and staff .

      If you wish to meet socially or sit and chat whilst studying then why not visit the Foster Learning Zone where you can also enjoy a snack, a meal or a coffee whilst you meet up with friends or study with colleagues.
