Estates strategy

The University estate, including the land, its buildings and supporting infrastructure, form an essential part of the student experience, providing a place for our diverse population to live, learn and pursue leading edge research. The purpose of the Estate Strategy is to take a strategic overview of the estate needs in order to support the strategic plan of the University.

Estates policies and procedures

Policies and procedures underpin our commitment to manage the estate in accordance with strategic aims and objectives, risk assessment, legislation and best practice. They guide how decisions are made and work undertaken, increasing accountability and transparency and where possible should be forward-looking, taking account of planned and possible future regulatory frameworks.

Health and safety

Estates & Development look to achieve the highest levels in health & safety and minimise our impact on the diversity of the campus and on the environment. To this end, we expect our staff and contractors working for the University to apply the policies and procedures detailed on the attached link when conducting their work operations on site. Adherence with policies including the Asbestos Policy, Legionella Policy, Gas Safety Case etc is fundamental to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of all students, staff, residents and visitors on campus.
