“Wow!” is how one student has described the new multi-million pound David Hockney Building at Bradford College, which is now home to the college’s Ophthalmic Dispensing section.

“The building is open plan with natural light and extensive views of Bradford, and provides an innovative and technology rich learning environment,” said Julie Lees, lecturer and curriculum team leader.

Named after the internationally acclaimed artist and alumnus of Bradford College, the David Hockney Building has a large leading edge lecture theatre. Ophthalmic Dispensing is located on the top floor with state of-the-art facilities. “It’s a really exciting time at Bradford College for both students and tutors,” Julie added.
