The new city centre college campus is situated around the Old Hall 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.

The development is also utilising City of Wolverhampton College's existing Metro One building.

Strip-out, demolition, ground preparation and piling works have now been completed and the foundations are in place, with contractor McLaughlin and Harvey on course to deliver the new state-of-the-art facility in time for the start of the 2025-26 academic year.
