About The Hub

Doncaster College's multi-million pound Waterfront campus opened in September 2006, giving students access to some of the best educational facilities in the country. The Hub offers a wide variety of higher and further education courses at the state-of-the-art site.

 

The building, jointly funded by the College, the Learning and Skills Council and Doncaster Council, took just under two years to build, employing more than 2,500 builders.

 

Students benefit from some of the best educational facilities around, including a 100-seat lecture theatre, a 200-seat drama studio and a huge two-floor Learning Resource Centre packed with IT facilities.

  

Leading edge technology is at the heart of the building - interactive whiteboards and projectors are in almost every classroom, video clips are streamed into classrooms via a network and plasma screens welcome students at entrances, informing them of the latest College news and events.

 

Students are also able to study in a very relaxed way with comfy seating, computer zones and seminar rooms making up the new, improved Learning Resource Centre.

 

But as well as a place to learn, this campus is a place to relax, too. People are able to unwind at the Spa Treatment Centre, which includes a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. They can even get a makeover at the on-site hairdressers, beautician and nail salon. The campus is also home to a gym sporting the very latest in fitness equipment.

 

There is also a range of catering options for every taste. Food is freshly produced by the students, for the students, offering a range of foods in two great restaurants.

 

The College offers a range of courses, including degrees and professional studies. For more information on courses offered at the College, click here or call 0800 358 7575.
