One of our key ambitions as a university is to continuously invest in providing first-class facilities for our students. By our centenary year, 2026, we want to significantly build on the successes we have already accomplished so far.
Many of the reasons behind these projects stem directly from student feedback, such as the need for more study space and better technical resources. Other key factors address sustainability, such as improving energy efficiency and reducing our carbon emissions.
While these projects focus on our long-term ambitions, we will be taking great care to minimise the risk of disruption for students currently studying at the University.
Investment so far
We have already invested over £500 million into our teaching, student accommodation and research facilities. We are not a university that rests on its laurels – we’re always on the lookout for new ways to enhance the services we offer.
We are now investing over £200 million into improving our campus facilities, which includes upgrading existing facilities and creating brand new ones. This exciting programme of capital investment projects is known as 2026: TRANSFORM
Our 2026: TRANSFORM programme is ambitious in scope, but we are making progress against our goals. Take a look at the projects we have completed so far.
We have many ambitions for what our University can become by our centenary in 2026. Take a look at some of the ideas we are currently considering.
