University Campus Barnsley opens its doors on Saturday 14 October to celebrate 85 years of education in Barnsley.

The Church Street Campus opened on Monday 10 October 1932, formerly known as Barnsley Mining and Technical College.

Those interested in attending the celebrations will have the opportunity to tour the building, learn the history of the building and find out about current student life at the event, which runs from 11.00am to 2.00pm.

Lorraine Copley, Dean of UCB, said: “We are looking forward to celebrating 85 years of education in Barnsley. Everyone is welcome to attend the celebrations, this is an ideal opportunity to find out more about the building and to have a chat with both former and future students.”
