Newman University is investing £22million over the next five years to develop its campus in Bartley Green, Birmingham. The programme is the next phase of an on-going campus development worth up £70m and follows the completion of a new library and entrance building, which was opened by Olympic gymnast Kristian Thomas, in 2013. Professor Peter Lutzeier, Vice-Chancellor of Newman University, said: "We're very pleased that Birmingham City Council have approved the plans and we can start work on the next phase of campus improvements. The new halls of residence will provide high quality accommodation to complement the outstanding learning and teaching spaces that enable our students to have an excellent higher education in Bartley Green. I hope the additional parking spaces will also be welcomed by our neighbours"
