Durham University Strategy, 2017-2027 aims to deliver education that is challenging, enabling, research-led and transformative, taking advantage of the latest digital technologies, welcoming talented students from all backgrounds and producing critically and socially engaged global citizens and graduates capable of fulfilling their full career potential.

The new Centre for Teaching and Learning will host a wide range of learning environments and technologies, including new classrooms that will allow students to share courses in real time with students from peer institutions from around the world.

There will be lecture theatres, teaching rooms, education labs where new teaching and training methods can be developed, student learning zones and catering facilities.

Outside term time the Centre will allow the University to host major academic conferences which will support the wider economic impact the University makes to Durham City, County and North East England.

Consultation has taken place and a planning application has been submitted to the local authority.

Planning permission is in place and work will begin on site in December 2017.
