Sports and Social

Sport goes hand in hand with academic achievement.

We aim to transform Ford Meadow site into a spectacular sporting facility on the home of Buckingham Town’s pitch which has been bought for the University by a generous Alumnus.

We aim to raise a further £2.5 million to transform Ford Meadow to Sports Meadow.

The new facilities will include:

  • Sports Centre (sports hall, fitness centre, exercise studio and sports bar) Professional size 4g football/rugby pitch
  • Outdoor multi-use games area for basketball, netball and tennis
  • Changing rooms
  • Spectator seating
  • Teaching room
  • Office space for up to 5 staff

Improved facilities are needed to support the expansion of numbers and to promote the full breadth of activity in a 21st Century university.

Priorities include a new library and learning centre, expanded student accommodation, and a new theatre and concert hall.

The Tanlaw Mill has served the University’s needs brilliantly. It is at the heart of our campus, supporting the activities which supplement the academic excellence at Buckingham. We need raise £3m for the expansion of Tanlaw Mill, so that we can provide the space to support our growing University, where the space to create, innovate and join together is as fundamental as the education itself.
