UWE nursing school branch moves to new Gloucester home  


The Gloucester branch of the nursing school at the University of the West of England is to relocate to new premises in the city centre later this year.

The Department of Nursing and Midwifery – part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences – will move from its present home, Hartpury College, to the newly refurbished historic Alexandra Warehouse on Gloucester docks. Over 400 new and current nursing students will make the move to the new site in September.

The faculty will take three floors of the newly refurbished centre on a 10 year lease to house the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing and BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing degrees.

The faculty has cited an “increased need for space and the benefits of a city centre location to students” as some of the key factors for relocating from Hartpury College.

Professor Helen Langton, pro vice-chancellor and executive dean of the faculty, said: “We are really excited about the new move to the Alexandra Warehouse and the benefits for UWE nursing students.

“The central location of Alexandra Warehouse and its close proximity to the NHS trusts in Gloucestershire will enable us to develop our relationships with NHS partners which will in turn, lead to a further enhanced student experience.”
