New Student Central building opens at the Unversity of Huddersfield

The brand new Student Central space, which links to the Central Services building, officially opened today.

The £22.5m building houses sport, leisure, eating, meeting, library and computing facilities for students and staff.

Two of our HLF2014 events will take place wholly or in part in this space: our Manga Con on Saturday 8 March and Tales of Mystic India from the Annarpurna Indian Dance company on the evening of 12 March (see our Diary of Events page for details and booking).

Our festival director, Michelle Hodgson, went down this morning to take a look and says, "The new Student Central building is certainly impressive and offers both an interesting space and extensive student facilities. I can't wait to see how our events work within this space - hopefully it will be the start of an ongoing partnership."
