High­fields is locat­ed on Uni­ver­si­ty Boule­vard and hous­es our engi­neer­ing courses. 

At the cen­tre of the site, you will find the Hub. This is home to the recep­tion, library and can­teen. Lead­ing off from this are a vari­ety of impres­sive work­shops includ­ing fab­ri­ca­tion, weld­ing, robot­ics, elec­tri­cal, pro­gram­ma­ble log­ic as well as lathe and milling workshops.

The cen­tre is also envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly by col­lect­ing all of the rain water from the site and releas­ing it into a reed bed, in order to reduce the amount of water going into the drains.
