This project comprises of a new Creative Centre within their current campus grounds, which includes a new teaching block and a 185-seater auditorium which will be internally linked.

The new Creative Centre will maximise the teaching spaces allowing for future adaptation of the teaching blocks.

The auditorium will form a beacon at the centre of the campus facing onto York Minster and creating a new civic space at the heart of the site.

York St John University Creative Centre has obtained full planning permission, which has cleared the way to prepare for demolition of the existing buildings on the development site over the summer through June-August 2019. This is a key milestone for the project.
