Student Hub On Target For September Opening
The innovative and sustainable building will effectively create a one-stop shop for all student needs and will further improve facilities for staff and students as well as benefit the local community.
Housing a number of Edge Hill’s student services, retail and dining areas in one place for the first time, the new building will mark the central point between the modern western campus and the iconic, 1930s Main Building.
The Hub will fundamentally redevelop and enhance the existing Main Building and will incorporate the Terrace café and Sages restaurant, opening up kitchen and seating capacity for both. Catering will include an area for hot meals as well as more formal dining requirements, a fresh sandwich ‘grab and go’ section and a quality coffee shop.
Retail facilities will include a small convenience store and space for selling University branded merchandise, as well as the possibility of an academic book retailer.

Pro Vice-Chancellor Steve Igoe said: “Edge Hill University is committed to providing a high quality student experience and has invested over £130m over recent years in creating an award winning campus environment that is amongst the best in British higher education. The Student Hub is our latest development and will enhance our facilities even further to the benefit of both staff and students alike . If we want to continue to attract large numbers of high quality students, we have to ensure an outstanding student experience particularly in a future environment dominated by increased expectations and demands. I’m delighted that work is progressing rapidly on this project and am confident that we will have it ready in time for the start of the new term in September.”
As well as creating a visually exciting focal point for the University, The Hub will also help to improve the flow of foot traffic around the campus. Its orientation will provide the future main entrance to the existing building, in accordance with the University’s masterplan which envisages an East/West transition across the Ormskirk campus.
The building will also demonstrate Edge Hill’s proven commitment to sustainable development. It will be thermally efficient with a design that promotes natural light and ventilation. Energy will be recycled, for example from cooking areas, to be re-used throughout the building.
