New Square to be Introduced in Uclan Transformation

More major changes are coming to the University of Central Lancashire’s Preston campus, just weeks after completion of its £60m university square development.

They will revamp and transform the area around the former St. Peter’s Church, which is now the university’s arts centre, and library and students’ union buildings.

Located on Fylde Road and Adelphi Street, the current “basin” paved area to the rear of the students’ union will be removed. It will be turned into a granite-based “central university square” which will be used for a range of events and activities – including open days, screenings and organised and informal court games.

The famous war memorial plaque will also be moved to a more sheltered space as part of the resurfacing works through the spine of the campus, moving from the east wall of St Peter’s Church to the north wall.
