Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College dining area gets a bright makeover
Students at a college came back from their half-term holidays to a new dining area.
Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College, in University Road, Leicester, now has a brighter space for students to eat and socialise in, after spending more than £1 million on the refurbishment.
Study areas have also been created to provide a quiet space for work.
Student Marium Arshad, 16, said: "It's been totally revamped and it's fantastic. The place looks a lot brighter and fresher and the colours are really vibrant.
"It's going to be a great place to grab some food or just relax for a bit and talk to your friends."
Kajal Daudia, 16, said: "It's a huge improvement. It's definitely got the wow factor."
Principal Sandra Hamilton-Fox said: "The difference this development will make to the daily lives of students is immeasurable.
"Students have been with us all the way on this project, and were involved in the design, naming, colour schemes and furnishing.
"The students have been incredibly patient since the start of this academic year, when they had a very limited service. It is great to see them occupying this new area."
