Norwich University of the Arts wins THELMA Award for outstanding buildings
The development of NUA’s campus in recent years has been hailed as inspirational in this year’s Times Higher Leadership and Management Awards – winning the award for Outstanding Estates Strategy.
Judges of the awards, known as the THELMAs, praised investment in campus buildings and facilities and said they were impressed by the vision behind the growth of the university.
They praised NUA for achieving “a great deal with a relatively modest budget”. They added that the redevelopment of Guntons, and the opening of Cavendish House and Boardman House over the last five years had helped to “build up the cultural quarter of Norwich” around St George’s.
Times Higher editor John Gill said: “Our hope is that the winners will also inspire others working in universities across the UK, and provide examples that they can emulate and adapt to improve their own institutions.”
