The University of Plymouth is creating a new home for the Plymouth Business School and work is underway at the heart of our city centre campus.
At a cost of £14.5 million, the transformed Fitzroy Building will include specialist teaching facilities and social learning spaces for students on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including those in business and management, accounting and finance, and marketing.

The transformation of the Fitzroy Building is further evidence of our long-held commitments to sustainability and net zero. Once again, we are taking an existing building and repurposing it to create a cutting-edge space that will enhance teaching and experiences for both our students and staff. It is also the result of a long-held desire to bring our business students into the heart of the campus, giving them a facility that will advance their aspirations and inspire their innovation.

Plymouth Business School 

When the new Plymouth Business School opens, it will include an upgraded Bloomberg Interactive Learning Suite, where students learn how to analyse financial markets, as well as a Maritime Suite and a Language Lab.
Through the School’s teaching and facilities, students will acquire the skills they need to succeed in their chosen career, alongside developing an understanding of their sustainability and social responsibilities.

Courses like our marketing programme are consistently ranked among the best in the country, and the Business School attracts significant numbers of international students. Our industry-led programmes equip graduates to be successful, and we know the quality of our teaching and support is already held in high regard. This new home for the School will create an exciting new space in which current and future students can foster the knowledge and enthusiasm that they will need to achieve their ambitions.

The Cube

Fitzroy will also provide a new location for The Cube, the University’s acclaimed enterprise support service, which has supported over 4,400 student interactions and generated 230 businesses over the past three years.
Plymouth Business School, The Cube and the new University of Plymouth Freelancers Agency will enable more students and graduates to access advice, funding and support that will empower them to follow their dreams.
