Planning for the next generation of students needs to start now. But in a period of economic uncertainty with technological advances happening at breakneck speed, how can those in charge of university estates decide where best to invest and build for tomorrow’s students and academics?
With sustainability high on the agenda, the environmental impact of any future development cannot be ignored. How can our universities ensure they are fit for this ever-evolving future – and that their impact is a positive one?
The THE Estates Management Symposium 2021 event brought together leading figures from across academia and industry to examine how these challenges can be met, and hear new ideas on shaping the estate to suit a fast-changing curriculum. We also discovered innovative ways in which industry-university collaborations can fund redevelopment, and reaffirm how civic engagement must be a fundamental consideration for universities.
Experts shared case studies, research, and strategies to offer their vision for our universities of the future and help the sector prepare its institutions for 2030 and beyond.
