Leeds City College’s University Centre has officially completed a £400,000 makeover for the new academic year, including a brand new make-up suite and specialist science labs.

The building on Park Lane, has been fitted with advanced audio visual equipment to complement the high quality teaching and learning, while the innovative science labs allow for vast amounts of hands-on experience and practical opportunities. With access to chemical analysis equipment, students will now have the opportunity to study biomolecules and gene technology.

The make-up suite, known as The Make-up Vault, consists of a dispensary room filled with professional products, a wig drying cabinet, bespoke make-up units and a 60-inch touchscreen TV.

Another new addition to the university is The Press cafe, a delicatessen offering freshly made on-site food and beverages that meets the needs of the staff and students, including gluten free bread and almond milk.

The study zone will house an expanded library service and study skills hub for students to get advice and information on academic writing and study skills. All new first year full-time students starting in September 2017 will also receive a free Google Chromebook, or curriculum specific alternative, to support their studies, research and online learning.

Janet Faulkner, Dean of HE added: "We are always looking to continuously improve and expand our facilities to give students the best possible experience at the University Centre. I am very excited about the new developments and I believe our students will be equally as pleased!”

Open evenings will be taking place throughout the year, including 11 October, 10 January, and 5 July between 5 and 7pm.
