To the tower!

Posted on 8th March 2016

Building work has now been completed on the North West Media Centre tower development at our Warrington campus.

The new facility includes a large space downstairs for film screenings and for exhibitions of our own students' work, as well as visiting photographers and other exhibitors.

Upstairs there is a new multimedia suite, kitted out with iMacs, including spaces for sound booth recording and a TV corner.

The new tower suite is to be open for student use 24/7.

First year Television and Radio student Morgan Porter commented: “It’s really exciting – it’s great to have a fantastic new space to study and make programmes!”

"This is a brilliant new facility," added Head of Media Dr Alec Charles. "We've already had some fantastic feedback from our students - it going to be a great new space in which our students can work, study and create!"

Meanwhile Journalism students are enjoying new newsrooms at the University’s Parkgate Road campus in Chester, fully equipped with iMacs, phones and TV screens.

Second year journalism student Steph Hazlegreaves said: “The facilities are better, and it’s great to be close to the centre of the action. There are so many stories in this town to report.”
