The University of Wolverhampton in the UK has submitted plans to Wolverhampton City Council for a new £11m business school building.

The six-storey building will be located at the junction of Molineux Street and Camp Street at the university’s City Molineux campus.

After completion, the building will feature lecture, tutorial and seminar rooms, offices and a central social space and café.

If approved, work on site is expected to commence in December 2013 and be complete in May 2015.

The University of Wolverhampton’s dean of social sciences, which incorporates the business school, Anthea Gregory, said that the building is part of the university’s plan to support and drive economic regeneration in the region.

"This latest development will further improve what we can offer to students and enhance the experience they have with us," Gregory said.

"The six-storey building will be located at the junction of Molineux Street and Camp Street at the university’s City Molineux campus."

"We want the new business school to provide an exciting learning environment supported by the latest technology and able to offer tailored facilities to meet the needs of learners from sub-degree level right the way through to executive education."

The plans are part of a £45m expansion of the university, which includes redevelopment of its City Molineux and Wulfruna Campuses at Wolverhampton City Centre.

A new £25m Science facility, including laboratories alongside teaching and meeting rooms is being created by extending and redeveloping the current MB Building, which faces onto Stafford Street.

Work is currently being carried out on a new £250,000 multi-use sports pitch for the university.
