Your Union update

Upgrading student cental 



Your University and Students' Union are working together to create a sector leading student facility that will enhance the experience of everyone studying at the University of Hull. 




We're talking to everyone who uses the building and those that will use it in the future to ensure that the design is fit for purpose and as future proof as possible.

January - February

Between December 2017 and February 2018 we ran a series of workshops with current students, elected representatives and students from a local college and sixth forms. Find out what they said here. 

We used this information to create an all student survey which we launch on valentines day - asking what you love and loathe about our building. 


We invited architects, Space to visit Student Central and evaluate the building. They shared with us what they felt were the strengths of the spaces we have and what the opportunities were to improve. 

The University reviewed these plans and approved £4.5 million to be spent on Student Central over the next two years. Read the announcement here. 

We began our consultation on the project by running interactive workshops with groups of current and potential students attending local sixth forms and colleges. You can register your interest to take part in future paid workshops here.
