A ceremonial Topping Out event has marked construction of ARU Peterborough, the city’s new multi-million university, reaching its highest point

The new university is being driven forward by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, in collaboration with Peterborough City Council and Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

The celebration, attended by local press and key members of the project, marks an important moment in the journey of creating a new university for Peterborough.

An employment-focused university, ARU Peterborough will deliver courses targeted specifically towards industries across Peterborough where demand currently outstrips availability of skilled workers.

The project is backed by over £24.8 million of funding, including £12.3m of capital investment from the Combined Authority, £12.5m of Local Growth Funding and £1.6m in land investment from Peterborough County Council.

ARU Peterborough is on track to open to its first students in September this year. The university will boost the skills, training, and employment prospects of people in Peterborough and the surrounding region and increase the number of skilled workers available to local businesses.
