Virtual Tour

Have you ever wondered what Suffolk New College’s state-of-the-art multi-million pound campus looks like inside? Well now you can find out – with the click of a mouse!

The College has launched an online virtual tour of its Ipswich campus, featuring a series of stunning 360 degree photographs of the facilities and learning environments students enjoy.

Included in the tour is the College’s 100-seat Shelley’s Restaurant; the Learning Curve, where students can take advantage of touch screen computers, books and DVDs; the professionally-equipped film theatre, TV studio and radio station; dance and performance studios; beauty salon and spa; brick, carpentry and decorating workshops; sports centre; and the motor vehicle repair workshop.

The high resolution images were captured using the latest DSLR photographic equipment, software and techniques by Ipswich firm Ambient Light.

Tracey Bailey, Director of Communications, said: “We are incredibly proud of the facilities we offer our students so we wanted to find a way to show people just how impressive the campus here really is.

“The 360 degree virtual tour gives prospective students the chance to experience the College as though they were actually here and get an idea of what learning in our modern campus is like before they physically set foot through the door.

Carl Lamb, owner of Ambient Light, added: “It's a stunning tour, one of my favourites that I have created to date.

“The spaces look fantastic and it's wonderfully vibrant; a brilliant showcase of what Suffolk New College is about. It will likely surprise a lot of people to see what facilities the students have now.”

The £70 million Suffolk New College campus was opened in 2009 and includes industry-standard facilities and realistic working environments to ensure students can easily make the transition into employment when they leave.
