About the Marine Station

A multi-million pound teaching and research facility that will enable students to learn about the marine environment before they head out onto or under the sea has opened its doors at Plymouth University.

Located on the city’s waterfront at Coxside, between the National Marine Aquarium and Queen Anne’s Battery, the £4.85 million, two-storey building, has bespoke facilities such as wet labs and aquaria where students will be able to study and store samples they collect in the field.

It will serve as the base for the University’s fleet of vessels, including the research vessel Falcon Spirit and sail-training vessel Take the Helm, and its fully-equipped SCUBA diving facilities will not only enable students to learn the skills needed to become scientific divers, but will also be a centre for professional diving training for scientists at organisations such as the British Antarctic Survey.
