The University’s Estate Strategy 2017-2027 is now available to view online as a PDF.

As a document, it sets out a framework through which the development of the estate will support and enable the University Strategy.

With a focus upon developing our existing presence within Manchester city centre and the Oxford Road Corridor, it will support our academic ambition and reinforce the centrality of the University to the city and our community.

It also identifies the potential capacity of the estate, opportunities to improve campus connectivity and a range of development options over a 10-year period.

The Strategy is comprised of three key principles:

  • High Quality – meet the quality needs and expectations of students, staff and all University stakeholders
  • Effective – provide the right accommodation and facilities at the right time in order to meet corporate strategy aims and objectives
  • Efficient – costs of delivering and operating the estate provide excellent value for money
