Multi-million pound investment in facilities

Multi-million investment has transformed our campus and the experience for our students.

Industry-standard specialist facilities are installed across both of our campuses.

Our latest £6m building project has just been completed at our Great Yarmouth Campus and it looks amazing, come and see our:

  • Bright new glass-fronted library – overlooking a landscaped courtyard. Our Library is a friendly environment for study and tuition with specialist staff happy to advise on resources and equipment.
  • Job Shop – located in the new Learning Street, here you can drop in to see what is available and register your interest.
  • College Shop – meeting all your stationery needs plus brand new ECC branded merchandise to show you’re a member of the ECC team!
  • Coffee to go – a quick stop point for coffee, hot drinks and snacks – to enjoy in the light and airy “Atrium” or outside in the Courtyard.
The whole campus has enjoyed a refresh and the college’s new branding and wellbeing ethos is now embedded through its fabric.

Over £8million has been invested in our Lowestoft Campus:

Major investment has been made to the campus over the years to make sure that our students are able to enjoy training in well-equipped facilities. New cladding has been installed to the tower block, the hairdressing and beauty therapy facilities were completely refurbished in recent years and, in the summer of 2015, the art facilities were completely renovated. Major investment has also been made to the engineering and maritime departments to ensure they stay up to date with industry standards.
