“The University is delighted to launch its Campus Masterplan.

“The first thing I want to say is that you don’t need to be a student to see and feel the benefit of what Teesside University is doing for Middlesbrough.

“Investments on this scale help everyone. They bring with them more interest in Middlesbrough, more people to Middlesbrough, more jobs for Middlesbrough and more opportunities to Middlesbrough.

– Dave Budd, Mayor of Middlesbrough
