Estate Development

Durham University Strategy, 2017-2027 sets out ambitious goals to deliver world-class research, education and wider student experience.

To deliver the Strategy, the University needs a world-class estate. Major investments are planned, in new departmental space, teaching space, residential accommodation and student facilities, and in improving the condition of the existing estate.
