Lancaster University recognised the increasing competition within the higher education world to attract and retain the best students and academic staff which has led it to select a highly prominent site for their sports centre. It's position is intended to help create a new 'front door' to the rural campus which is located alongside one of the main entry roads into the city.

With its proximity to the Lake District and Pennines, it comes as no surprise that climbing is a popular activity at the University. The help of the Chancellor, Sir Chris Bonnington, was therefore enlisted to develop a large 325 m2 climbing wall and 'bouldering cave' design for a prominent corner of the building overlooking the campus entrance.
