Sports and aquatic centre upgrade

23 August 2012

Hot on the heels of our success at the London 2012 Olympics, we're pleased to report that the expansion of the University Sports and Aquatic Centre on our Darlington Campus is progressing well.

You may notice increased activity and noise on the site as the project approaches excavation phase in October. Campus Infrastructure and Services (CIS) is in consultation with staff most impacted by the noise, and we apologise for any inconvenience during this time.

The upgrade will provide a new sports hall comprising two basketball courts, a group fitness studio, a boxing gym and a combat sports area. The project is due to be completed in mid-2013.

Visit our CIS website to find out more about the upgrade.
