In 1992 Wolverhampton Polytechnic
was granted university status and thus became the University of Wolverhampton. The following year the first stage of construction was completed on the Priorslee Hall site at the Telford campus; this became home to both business and computer aided design students.
1994 saw Wolverhampton
become the first UK university to be awarded the Charter Mark for excellence in customer service. In 1995 two local nursing colleges (The United Midlands College for Nursing & Midwifery and the Sister Dora School of Nursing) amalgamated to form the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the Walsall campus.. Wolverhampton Science Park - a collaboration between the university and the local council - opened in 1996. Its aim was to forge a link between local businesses and the university's research departments.
The final years of the 20th century saw a huge amount of development and expansion for the university. Two new state-of-the-art learning centres were opened at the Telford and City campuses in 1998. These learning centres were a fusion of traditional libraries with high-tech facilities, aimed at providing a greater range of accessible materials for students. The following year the university opened the Arena Theatre on the City campus along with the new SC building in Telford. The SC building became home to two new projects: DELTA and the Competitiveness Centre. DELTA was a new department aimed at the propagation of the latest information and communication technologies in education, whilst the Competitiveness Centre had the same goal, but for local businesses.
