Over £10 million of the UK’s National Lottery money will be used to redevelop Wales’s oldest university college, Aberystwyth University’s iconic Old College.

Hailed as the birthplace of university education in Wales, Aberystwyth is a Grade I listed building that began its dedication to learning in 1872.

Guto Bebb, UK Government in Wales Minister, visited the college to mark the occasion.

“This National Lottery funding secures the future of the Old College, meaning it can continue to play a vital role in the futurenot only of the university but the town itself. As an alumnus myself, I am pleased to see such a worthwhile and exciting project as this being supported to help secure a sustainable future for a building of which I have very fond memories,” Bebb said.
