Delivering the world's Smartest Campus

Our mission is to deliver an enriched, personalised experience for students, staff, academics and visitors. To bring together our people, processes and services to become a fully connected, global campus. 

The Smart Campus will facilitate many of the University's strategic objectives, including a pathway to Net Zero Carbon, development of a Living Lab for research, industry collaboration and teaching, and the creation of a campus where data drives decision making, and research collaboration is enabled by better utilisation of space.

Our Smart Campus Vision

The University started with a vision: to enhance the physical and digital foundations of our University, whilst protecting our cultural and physical heritage and realising cost savings.

After teaming up with Smart Campus consultants PTS, a clear narrative was developed that builds on the vision for designing and delivering a Smart Campus.

As part of a thorough process, a range of internal stakeholders, including both Professional Services and Academics, were engaged through a range of workshops.

The outputs of this engagement are aligned to both the Digital Strategy, together with the plans for the Capital Programme and the Sustainability Programme including the route to Net Zero Carbon.
