Ushaw College closed ?

I'm bit confused about these links. Is Ushaw College already closed or what ? These pictures show a derilict place, but is it Ushaw ? These photos are supposed to have been taken in Nov 2010. I thought the closure of Ushaw was under consideration not a fait accomplis ? I'd be interested to know. More pictures can be found here. I'm not convinced it's Ushaw College though.

Ushaw College is closing, and most of the non-religious activities associated with the site will cease from tomorrow. The College itself will be officially closed from June 2011, and all students will be moving to Oscott College from September 2011.

I have no idea whether or not that picture is from Ushaw, as I've never been there.

Hope this answers some of your questions.

The picture is of the old Junior House at Ushaw, which closed in the 1970s. It has fallen into this condition despite the best efforts of the management to develop it for new uses, which have repeatedly been blocked in the planning stages. If something is not done to reverse the decision of the Trustees, the same fate awaits the main college.
