The Severn Campus

University of Worcester

The University's intention is to create a new 'Severn Campus' which will be the home of the International Centre for Inclusive Sport, Physical Activity and Health. The first stage in this was the opening of the very successful University of Worcester Arena in 2013. 

The Project consists essentially of three new buildings: the International Centre for Inclusive Cricket, a new Training Hall mainly for basketball and netball, and a new Health Hub containing therapeutic, educational and communal facilities.

The masterplan proposal ranges the three new buildings along the west side of the site, creating a central green space which will act as a focus for the whole campus. The buildings are raised above the flood plain of the River Severn and are linked by a covered boardwalk that overlooks the central space. 

This new facility will symbolise the amazing work being done by Worcestershire County Cricket Club and the University of Worcester to make cricket truly inclusive.
