Campus Facts

1. 22,016 meters of data cabling was used in the CU Scarborough campus. That's enough to travel the height of the Eiffel Tower a whopping 68 times!

2. The amount of copper pipework used for the heating and water systems is equivalent to the height of 707 London double decker buses piled on top of each other.

3. 131 tonnes of concrete was used in the pile foundations, that's the equivalent weight of 18 fully grown elephants.

4. 860 metres of under floor heating pipework went into the campus build, enough to span the height of the world's tallest building.
