Future Development

 A Mightier Hild Bede   

Hild Bede is on an amazing site which is notable for some historic and many older buildings within the University estate. We are currently working on exciting plans to invest in the refurbishment and redevelopment of the College so that it continues to offer the best possible experience for staff, students, the wider College community and other users. 

Accommodation for 24/25

We’ve got exciting things planned for the future of St Hild and St Bede, with the redevelopment and refurbishment of the College’s historic home planned for the academic year 2024/25.

We’re really pleased to say that while this work takes place, members of our Hild Bede student community will be offered accommodation at Rushford Court. This purpose-built student accommodation, within walking distance of the city centre, provides students with en-suite rooms on a self catered basis. A range of college facilities are currently under development on site to deliver a brand new cafe-bar, common room, gym, music room and study spaces.
