The Waterside Campus- Learning Hub

The UoN, Northampton

During the Summer of 2018, the University of Northampton relocated to their new purpose built campus. Waterside is not your standard university!

Working closely with the Estate and Executive Project Team, Architects, and Suppliers, Ralph + Smith as the furniture and space consultants, have been a part of the planning, design and specification for 5 buildings on the new site, including the Learning Hub

The 156,000 sq ft building is the largest on the campus and is the heartbeat of the university where the bulk of the academic teaching will take place.

The five-storey space incorporates:

Learning environments,


Student help desks,

Academic and Admin Open Workspaces

Careers Advice drop in zone

I.T Support


Silent Study Space

Open and Private Meeting Spaces

Catering outlets and Cafes

Open working Terrace Spaces

University Bar

Exhibition space

Teaching rooms

" I would wholeheartedly like to recommend Ralph+ Smith for their professionalism and design skills.  Working with Chloe and Claire has been an enjoyable experience, resulting in outstanding furniture choices for the University of Northampton.  Working closely with the team, time and money have been effectively used.  The fabrics and colour schemes have proved to be very popular with staff and students, maximising the impact of the spaces and providing a fantastic environment for study, working, eating and socialising.
