A new multi-million pound campus at Carlisle College is now open.
The £9 million, 2,998m² facility heralds the completion of a six year modernisation programme at Victoria Place Campus.
The innovative, high-tech and sustainable learning environment will give students the opportunity to learn over 300 different skills.
It features external landscaping, which leads to a new main entrance and reception area, an impressive open plan atrium space that houses the new training kitchen and Oyster restaurant, the new Essence salon and additional classrooms and facilities for a wide range of courses.
Principal Moira Tattersall said: “At the moment it feels like a thousand Christmas’s have come at once
“Despite all the artist impressions and architect drawings, nothing compares with actually being in the building and marvelling at how fantastic everything is.”
