New world class technology university is to be built in Central Milton Keynes

A new “world class” university is to be built in Central Milton Keynes, just across the block from the rail station, reports the Milton Keynes Citizen.

MK Council has designated block B4, land between the station and Sainsbury’s, for the uni building.

To be called MK:U, it could house at least 5,000 students and be open by 2023.

The council, which has invested around £10m in the scheme, has already approved a partnership with Cranfield University to lead the project.

The uni will focus on technology and play a major role in the prestigious Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford corridor development.

The university will be designed as an education institution for the 21st century, delivering a STEM-focused (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) curriculum in key areas including digital, cyber, autonomy, robotics and artificial intelligence. It is part of the long-term vision of the city playing a major role in the Oxford-MK - Cambrige corridor.
