Welcome to the Estates Directorate Strategy, 2025



As a Directorate, we are entrusted with an historic and beautiful estate: to honour and conserve its legacy for future generations whilst creating the very best facilities for our world-changing researchers along with learning and teaching spaces to inspire our future world changers.

We are committed to enhancing the experience of our students and staff through the services we deliver and the spaces we provide.

Effective partnership working is essential to achieve this:

  • with colleagues across University Services to ensure coherent and integrated delivery plans
  • with our academic, research and student community to fully understand their needs and aspirations
  • with our external stakeholders, city and community, to fulfil our civic commitment

To this partnership we bring professional expertise, insight and a  commitment to deliver our part in achieving the University's vision.
