Gateway - Bedford

The University has invested £25m into a 'gateway to learning in Bedford'. Having started construction on the Gateway in October 2013, the University was handed the keys by contractor Kier Construction in November 2014.

The three-storey building located at the entrance of the Bedford campus opened to students in January 2015.

Part of the university's 'greening of the campus' initiative, the Gateway includes a number of sustainable and low carbon technologies such as rainwater harvesting. The project team are aiming towards a BREEAM rating of 'excellent'.

Amongst the number of state-of-the-art facilities and improvements included in the development are:

  • Three board rooms and small seminar rooms
  • Eight group study and small meeting rooms
  • Four informal learning and break areas
  • Large conference and events space
  • Improved main entrance to campus
  • Enhanced Student information Desk (SiD)
  • 12 classrooms
  • IT suite
