News that Ulster University is to redevelop the Students’ Union in Coleraine has been welcomed by MLA Maurice Bradley and Causeway Coast and Glens councillor Aaron Callan.
Design work is underway at the Cromore Road site to enhance the Students’ Union space and facilities.
In redeveloping the 335m² space, the university is working closely with Ulster University Students’ Union (UUSU) to design and create a contemporary centrally located space for students to relax and socialise both during the day and in the evening. The on-campus bar will offer a welcoming and casual atmosphere for the campus’s 3,000 students.
Councillor Callan said: “The future of Coleraine Campus is important, not just to Ulster University or Coleraine, but to the region of Causeway Borough.
“As a proud graduate of Coleraine University I know the world class teaching and facilities it offers.
“A vision and plan for the campus which helps develop it further to offer more for students and the local community is to be welcomed. The DUP has long championed the Coleraine campus for further investment and more courses.”
MLA, Maurice Bradley added: “Councillor Aaron Callan and I have regular meetings with Malachy O’Neill, the University’s Director of Regional Development, so we are aware of plans to develop the campus.
“The University are keen to work with the community to improve the facilities on offer at the Coleraine Campus.
“As a member of the Harry Gregg Foundation, I know first hand of the cooperation with the Foundation.”
