Canterbury City Council has approved our planning application for the redevelopment of the former prison site in Canterbury. This follows more than two years of detailed planning and consultation with staff, students, key partner organisations and the public.

Building 1 will provide an opportunity to celebrate the creative process and exhibit the output of students’ work in graphic and illustrative arts, digital arts, photography, commercial music and music production.
Building 2 (backland area) will be an academic and research facility promoting collaboration and social learning and creating an open and welcoming backdrop to St Augustine’s Abbey.

Building 3 (former prison building) will form a new social space, community space and welcome centre to the North Holmes Campus - the University ‘Hub’.
The spaces in which buildings sit are as important as the buildings themselves. The outdoor spaces have been designed to unify the buildings and help pedestrians navigate their way through the campus.
