Nottingham City Hub

Central College Nottingham and New College Nottingham are due to officially merge in summer 2017, creating ‘Nottingham College’.

This new College will be one of the largest further education institutions in the UK, serving more than 40,000 students studying a wide range of subjects.

As part of the merger, in addition to taking on CCN and NCN’s current sites Nottingham College has plans for a new facility off Canal Street, in the city centre.

Work on the £60million ‘Nottingham City Hub’ is due to begin in 2018, with a completion date of 2020. Sheffield architects Bond Bryan are finalising a design for the building to submit for outline planning permission in late 2017.

Nottingham City Council has agreed to invest around £19m in the City Hub, the college will also invest and D2N2 is set to provide around £30m in financing – subject to the College’s detailed business plan, to be presented to the D2N2 Infrastructure and Investment Board (IIB) by spring 2018.

The Nottingham City Hub is part of a wider £250m regeneration of the Nottingham Broadmarsh area, or ‘southern gateway’ to the city centre (see additional entry on this web page).
