When the new semester arrives this September, JMU Journalism students will have to remember they are not heading off to Edge Lane anymore, as the department moves back into town and into the new Redmonds Building on Clarence Street.

JMU Journalism is leaving Liverpool Innovation Park in Wavertree in advance of switching to the new £37.6million Clarence Street premises in time for the 2012/13 academic year, after four years at Edge Lane following the move from Dean Walters in the summer of 2008.

Head of Journalism, Professor Chris Frost, said: “Our new building brings us fantastic facilities placed centrally in the university’s city centre campus. With its state of the art studios and newsrooms, it’s a brilliant place to study journalism in a city packed with news.”

Redmonds, named after LJMU Honorary Fellows Phil and Alexis Redmond, has been developed on the footprint of the old LJMU building on the corner of Brownlow Hill.

Work began two years ago with the demolition of the former structure to make way for construction on Redmonds, which is twice the size of the original building.

When Redmonds opens its doors, it will boast industry-standard film and broadcasting studios and professional training facilities. It will house the Liverpool Screen School, Liverpool Business School and the School of Law.
