Wolverhampton's London 2012 Olympic medallist, Kristian Thomas, will officially open the new St Chad building and library at Newman University College today.

Work began on the £20 million project in 2010, which includes a high-profile new-build library, entrance building, lecture theatres and research centre, alongside a state-of-the-art sport performance suite and refurbished community sports facilities.
