James College expansion proposed

James College has been offered the chance to expand its social space into the area vacated when Goodricke Colleges moves to Heslington East next year. Neil Blunt, James College Provost, has been conducting a survey to find out what James students would want from a new social area.

Current suggestions include a quiet reading area and a larger social area including pool tables and sofas. Blunt believes “the relocation of Goodricke is a chance to look at what facilities James college needs if it is to fulfil its potential here in Heslington West.” Many James students hope that the expansion will give them a social space as large as the other colleges.
