Starbucks to open as part of £4m redevelopment at university

The University of Wolverhampton is to open a Starbucks store on its City Centre campus as part of a £4m redevelopment of the university's catering facilities.

The redevelopment includes refurbishing the food court at the Millennium City building, landscaping the main courtyard area and improving access to the Wulfruna building.

Plans for the work were approved by Wolverhampton City Council earlier this year.

Emma Furnival, assistant director for hospitality & accommodation services at the university, said: "We're really excited about opening the new Starbucks store. The investment at the City Centre campus is focused on improving and extending catering facilities, providing more choice for students, staff and visitors as well as creating a more attractive environment for everyone who uses the campus."

Based at campuses in Wolverhampton, Walsall and Telford and education centres in Stafford, Burton and Birmingham City Centre, the university has over 21,000 students and 2,400 staff.
