1 Mins read

Employment and Learning Minister Dr Stephen Farry today announced that work had begun on a new sports centre for Ulster University.

The £5.1 million development, funded by the Department for Employment and Learning, will provide a modern sports centre for Ulster University’s Coleraine campus and will include eight multi-sport indoor courts, a fitness studio and upgraded changing facilities.

Reviewing the progress of the build, Minister Farry said: “This development will transform and revitalise the student experience from a sporting perspective at the Coleraine Campus. My Department’s investment will help meet the current and future needs of students and the University overall. It is vital that we have modern, state of the art facilities in our higher education institutions to provide the best quality learning and education environments for our students.”

Professor Deirdre Heenan, Provost of Ulster University’s Coleraine campus, said: “The new sports facility is a significant investment in the Coleraine campus and will bolster the University’s commitment to sport at all levels. Opening its doors in late 2016, the centre will help to accommodate the high demand for student sport and create a fitness and wellbeing hub that can be accessed by the local community.”

The facilities will be used for a broad range of sporting activities throughout the year including student sports, intervarsity competitions and University club training. The facility will also be the hub for the teaching and learning provision of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) courses in Physical Education and Primary Education. The wider community will also be able to access the new sports centre.
