Discover our exceptional facilities
At Suffolk New College, we pride ourselves on the exceptional facilities that we offer our students. We have invested millions in our facilities over the last ten years. As a result of this investment, students get to hone their talents in state-of-the-art teaching and training resources which include automotive, construction & IT workshops, science labs, hair and beauty salons, a spa, a 100-seat restaurant and three kitchens, radio, dance and TV studios, a 60-seat performance venue, and an 80-seat lecture theatre.
Between or after classes, students can do some personal study in the Learning Curve resource centre. Students can chill out and chat with friends in one of the informal meeting areas, or they can grab a Costa coffee and a snack from one of our various food outlets, without even having to leave the building!
