Having developed the city-wide campus masterplan for the University of Sunderland, GSSArchitecture were appointed to design two projects to enhance the current Student Gateways at City Campus and St. Peter’s Campus, aimed at realigning and improving the Gateway service across the university.
After the completion of the Prospect Gateway last year, work is now complete on the City Campus Gateway. The extensive interior works included an enquiries reception, improved career services, social learning spaces, refurbished toilet facilities and a corporate reception for external visitors to the University. Furthermore, a new entrance lobby has been constructed to encourage use of the building from the wider University Campus.
The phased approach to this regeneration has allowed for one Student Gateway to remain open whilst the other was closed, allowing for the services to still be available to all Students.
