    Our creative hybrid space, the Biome is an area for higher education learners to evolve, adapt, create and learn. 

    It's a vibrant space to communicate, collaborate and bring innovative ideas to life through a range of technology, including touch screen displays and Xencelabs pen displays, UV and dye sublimation printing, hybrid laser cutters and 3D formers enabling diverse prototyping.

    The area also provides a gateway to a range of facilities, including a motion capture suite, a network of seventeen 3D printers in partnership with Ultimaker, a Maker Space, a Sign and Print Academy in partnership with Hardy Signs and a LEGO Education Innovation Studio.

    The name ‘Biome’ was chosen to reflect the importance of sustainability, encouraging collaboration, diversity and creativity. The space has a local environment focus and includes sustainably sourced and hand-crafted furniture by local furniture designer, Jeff Maker.

    Based in the University Centre, the entrance to the Biome features “Another Green World”, a nature-inspired sculpture of ceramic birds with an interactive audio touchpad, created by established artist, Tom Hackett. The area reflects the College’s commitment to a sustainable future as a Carbon Neutral Organisation with ambitions for net zero.
