It's set to be a busy week. The University of Northampton’s new Waterside Campus has now opened and 12,000 young people and 2,000 staff will potentially be coming into Northampton town centre.
Speaking at last week's business conference Dr Deborah Mattock, Director of Human Resources, Marketing and International Relations at the University, said: “Please welcome all our students and staff. Our students have money to spend and skills to offer.”
This week is Freshers Week, with the Market Square (for the first time) hosting a week long event - with stalls, information and lots of students.
