Coventry University’s The Hub has won a prestigious award from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) at the annual regional awards ceremony last week.

The Hub, a new purpose-built student building designed by London-based architects Hawkins\Brown, won an RIBA Architecture West Midlands 2012 Award.

The building sits at the heart of the Coventry University campus and holds bars, a 700-capacity club, a cinema and performing arts space. It is also home to Coventry University Students’ Union and a range of student support services.

We are delighted that the RIBA have recognised what an exciting and important building The Hub is on our campus. It is a great tribute for all the hard work ourselves and our partners out in on creating this highly successful, student focused building for the 21st century.
