Britain's Princess Anne praised a new university building as "remarkable".
The Princes Royal visited Huddersfield University on Friday (23.01.15) to officially open the new Student Central area, which is designed a space for students to eat, study and relax and was very impressed with what she saw.
She said: "It's a really good example of what can be achieved by understanding students and the way you need to work together as a team.
"It is building on strengths with what was here in Huddersfield before and, hopefully, it will take you a long way."
Anne toured the facility, which includes a variety of food and drink outlets, a sports hall which can be turned into an exam room or meeting venue for up to 800 people, a fitness suite, dance studio and squash courts.
She also spoke at length to a number of fashion and textile degree students about the projects and work experience placements they have undertaken and was able to view their work.
She also met with staff working in the Sport and Fitness Department, the University Employability and Careers Service and the Wellbeing and Disability Service.
