We are a modern and dynamic university with an academic heritage dating back nearly 200 years and a long and a long and proud history of delivering top-class, industry-relevant courses.

The University campus continues to grow and expand with an ambitious multi-million-pound estates development programme to create an unbroken education corridor connecting the campus to Bolton Town Centre. Major developments include:

  • In 2017 we open the National Centre for Motorsport Engineering right here on campus, providing a world-leading environment for advanced performance engineers, games developers and design engineers.
  • Our new Institute of Management is scheduled to open in 2017 in the heart of the town centre at the newly developed Bolton Central facility.
  • The University's stategic headquarters moves to the iconic Le Mans Crescent behind the Town Hall in 2017, strengthening the bond between the University and town further.
  • The UK's most successful University Technical College was opened on campus in September 2015 with an investment of £10m.
  • £13m Queen's Specialist Building housing Biological Sciences, Dental, Theatre and Teacher Training courses.
  • Development of a new Student Village with new halls of residence in the centre of Bolton.
