BARNSLEY College's Old Mill Lane campus beat 40 of Yorkshire and Humber's most impressive property schemes to win a top award.
The college won the Community Benefit category at this year's Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Pro-Yorkshire Awards - known as the region's property Oscars.
The annual contest was hosted by TV personality George Clarke, a British architect best known for the Channel 4 series The Restoration Man.
RICS judges said the new £50million campus is more than just a college building and praised it as a community resource and an exciting working environment for students.
The Old Mill Lane building will now compete against other leading projects from across the UK in the national RICS Awards.
