Work is continuing on a £100m investment to improve facilities at Aberystwyth University.

About £45m was spent on new accommodation for 1,000 students with 100 studio flats at Fferm Penglais.

A further £35m is being spent a research campus at Gogerddan.

About £4.5m has been spent on lecture and teaching areas at Llanbadarn Centre, and the university is resubmitting a bid for heritage lottery funding for the Old College.

The university said the refurbishment of Welsh-language halls Pantycelyn is due to be discussed in October.
