The University of Nottingham has announced a major new building programme.

The plans involve three state-of-the art, environmentally sustainable buildings for University Park and another at the Sutton Bonington campus.

The developments form part of a £90m investment over a five-year period.

The university's vice-chancellor Professor David Greenway said it would help create an inspiring and harmonious environment in which to study.

He said: "These buildings will create a new benchmark for excellence in the surroundings and facilities provided to both students and staff here at The University of Nottingham.

"Teaching and learning are our core business and it is our priority to provide the best possible environmental infrastructure and educational technology as well as quality of teaching."

University Park is to get a new Mathematics Building, an Engineering and Science Learning Centre and a Humanities Building.

And a new Biosciences/School of Veterinary Medicine & Science building will go up near the existing Vet School at Sutton Bonington.

Funding for the new buildings has come from the Higher Education Funding Council's Capital Investment Fund as well as university funds.
