Aim 3: property that is valued and relevant

Create a vibrant academic hub, through a property portfolio which balances the needs of the University’s members with maximising income opportunities

The University owns and manages a large prestigious estate which includes academic and service buildings, student halls of residence, a book depository, gardens and private residences. These host a number of key activities that are fundamental to an effective University, notably academic space, libraries, student accommodation, student services and conference facilities.

Our objectives in relation to this aim are:

  • Greater use of Senate House as an academic hub and development of the public realm
  • Further modernisation and expansion of student residences
  • Increase the financial return from the estate
  • Ensure that there is a good fit between buildings and their function
  • Act as the custodian of the estate
  • Ensure that the estate is environmentally sustainable

This aim is underpinned by the following supporting strategy:
