Causeway Teaching Centre development

Set to open its doors from Autumn 2020, the Causeway Teaching Centre will be built on our Colchester Campus close to our North Towers accommodation.

The Causeway Teaching Centre will create 15 new teaching rooms with an average capacity of 40 persons, over three floors.

There will also be the ability to accommodate larger seminar groups of 80 people as two of the rooms on each level will have folding walls.

The external look of the building will resemble the original North Teaching centre.
