Neighbours of the former UCMK campus in Central Milton Keynes have been given a sneak preview of the centre that has a new official name.

The Silbury Campus, in Silbury Boulevard, is a part of Milton Keynes College and offers facilities, accommodation and support for new businesses.

Businesses can also take advantage of academic and vocational training courses and management and leadership qualifications provided by college lecturers.

Managing director of Apollo Live, Amar Chauhan, said: “The meet your neighbour event was an excellent opportunity to connect with other local businesses.

“It is particularly important for a start-up business like ourselves to get to know our neighbours and utilise the resources we have on our doorstep.”

The concept of Silbury Campus highlights the direction in which Milton Keynes College is moving.

The range of facilities and services are part of a push to make the college integral to the business community in the city providing services and solutions for a plethora of development needs.
