£45m Investment in State-of-the-Art Home for Carnegie School of Sport

We are committed to creating inspirational teaching and learning spaces, which is why we have invested £45 million in a new, state-of-the-art Carnegie School of Sport building on our Headingley campus, co-locating our highly specialised teaching and research laboratories.

The new investment will create a base for our undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes, and will provide a hub for the elite athletes who use our sports performance expertise.

Opening in September 2020, the building houses several outstanding features, including a 60m indoor athletics track, nutrition teaching kitchen, high performance strength and conditioning facility, human movement research laboratory, two environmental chambers, and a Performance Analysis Lab in partnership with Catapult. In addition there will be networking spaces for students, staff and visitors, a cafe, informal teaching space and learning support that will foster inter-disciplinary collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Our historic Headingley Campus is also home to our sport science laboratories, 3G and AstroTurf pitches, indoor and outdoor tennis courts and an outdoor athletics track.
