University Business Centre

As part of the ongoing regeneration and investment in Halifax, the Council is working with Leeds Beckett University in preparation for the opening of its University Business Centre in Halifax.

The Centre, which will be based at the renovated Piece Mill (next to the Piece Hall) in Halifax will allow Leeds Beckett to deliver university expertise in Calderdale, helping local early stage and growing businesses to thrive – ultimately helping to boost the economy in Halifax and the borough.

Businesses based in the University Business Centre will be able to access affordable office and meeting space, as well as access to professional business lounges and meeting facilities.

Whether you are looking to explore new markets, develop your product or boost business growth, The University Business Centre – Halifax can help.

Renovation of the site at Piece Mill (next to Piece Hall) should be completed and open later this year. For up to date information about The University Business Centre in Halifax, visit the website.

“We have a strong entrepreneurial tradition in Calderdale, with over 6,900 micro-businesses already based here.  Our partnership with Leeds Beckett will help these businesses to thrive, inspiring innovation and sharing the knowledge and skills to encourage growth and the creation of new jobs.”
