Over the last decade, Teesside University has invested more than £250 million in its Campus Heart, with a further £50 million scheduled for the next three years. With more than 20,000 students, it’s a significant economic driver for Middlesbrough and the wider Tees area.
The University’s success has helped drive a revival in the surrounding area as well as Middlesbrough’s night-time economy, and plans are in place for further complementary development that will support growth in the University campus and for businesses across the Linthorpe Road area.
The University continues to play a key role in the ongoing regeneration and economic and cultural vitality of the town, and the Council will continue to support and develop its links with a thriving and prosperous retail centre.
The demand for student amenities presents further opportunities to bring forward a residential mixed use development in Gresham, underpinned by the presence of a new student village. Learn more about the Gresham Student Village development.
