Heslington East :: Shared Description

Around the turn of the 20th century, the University of York was looking towards major expansion of the campus. Three sites had been earmarked as a potential new campus to supplement the current campus (now known as Heslington West), those sites being the area around Elvington Airfield; The York Central site (also known as the 'Eye of York') which was derelict railway land available for redevelopment; and an area of farmland to the east of Heslington. In 2004 the University settled on its preferred site and submitted an outline planning application for its preferred site, indicating its intention to increase student numbers from around 10,000 to 15,500. Like Heslington West, a masterplan was constructed for a phased development of the campus. Following a public inquiry in 2007, planning permission was obtained in 2008 for the first phase, which included relocations of Goodricke College, Computer Science and Law & Management Studies to the new campus, along with the creation of a new Theatre, Film & Television department, a Catalyst building and the Ron Cooke Hub. The first phase also included all the groundworks for the whole masterplan, including construction of the East Lake, raising of Kimberlow Hill and the building of service roads and footpaths. Construction started in 2008 and Goodricke College relocated in September 2009, in time for the new intake.
In 2011 phase two of the campus was started, with construction of a new College to enable Langwith to relocate from Heslington West and a new Sports Centre to be constructed close to Grimston Bar park and ride. These opened in autumn 2012 (Langwith College) and Easter 2013 (York Sports Village).
Phase 3 commenced in 2013 with a further college, although this time a new college was constructed, rather than relocating an existing college. Named after the Roman Emperor, Constantine College became the ninth college at the university and admitted its first students in autumn 2014.
