The City Learning Quarter news

Full construction works are underway on a transformational city centre campus that is the jewel in the crown of Wolverhampton's City Learning Quarter masterplan.

The £61 million City of Wolverhampton Council development – supported by Government funding - will establish new educational facilities for City of Wolverhampton College, Adult Education Wolverhampton and Central Library, benefitting skills and employment outcomes for residents across the city and wider region.

It is a major milestone for what is phase two of the masterplan, with contractor McLaughlin & Harvey set to deliver the council and college's vision in time for the start of the 2025/26 academic year.

The City Learning Quarter city centre facility will be situated around the Old Hall Street and St George's Parade area, incorporating a site on the corner of Garrick Street and Bilston Street, where the former Faces nightclub building once stood, and utilising the college's existing Metro One site.
