"providing high quality accommodation for teaching and learning."‎

Colin Blair, the Director of Estates and Facilities, assisted by members of his team and external consultants, manages directly the following areas of operation: -

  • Strategic Estate Planning
  • Property Acquisitions
  • Property Disposals
  • Strategic Estates Financial Planning
  • Estate/leases/licences
  • Strategic Space Management

Estates and Facilities are committed to providing high quality accommodation for teaching and learning. The aim of the estate strategy is to develop and maintain the best possible teaching and learning environment for students and staff. The University has completed the process of concentration of its current teaching and learning facilities on the single campus at Queensgate.

Future success in widening access to higher education depends on providing opportunities within areas where participation is low. Taking education to students will become as important as bringing students to education. In partnership with further education colleges and with employers, the University will implement policies to provide higher education closer to the students' homes.
