£25 million University Centre for Dudley, from Dudley College and the University of Worcester (Dudley was historically an exclave of Worcestershire).


Replaces the now condemned Dudley Hippodrome. Sits adjacent to the Light Rail Innovation Centre, Black Country and Marches Institute of Technology, and future Midland Metro stops.




Kept low to provide a new view of Dudley Castle. 4 storeys at peak

The way that entrance riffs off the shapes of the hippodrome is… macabre…

I genuinely don’t see why the frontage couldn’t have been retained for this?
Also disappointed it’s Worcester uni and not Wolves, obviously but hey ho

why have your eggs in one basket? I'm sure Dudley Advance either does/did partner with Aston uni or why not build a new university of Dudley or the black country more than enough wasteland round there for a campus ( as long as the limestone caverns have been filled in!!)

Wow, that is rubbish. Probably the best (and most contentious location) in Dudley and they come up with that.
Go back to the drawing board and come back with something better.

Bit of a wasted opportunity I think. Do better.
