Estates and Facilities Directorate

What We Do

The Estates and Facilities Directorate makes a positive and significant contribution to the University's shared vision by maintaining the physical environment, which contributes to the University's key aspiration of attracting high calibre staff and students to the University.

The Estates and Facilities Directorate is responsible for all building projects, and the maintenance of around 318 buildings and facilities across the main University campus, including both residential and non-residential.

One of the important, and ongoing, key roles of the Directorate is to provide a safe and sustainable work place for students, staff and visitors - something we believe we do very well.

We strive for excellence in everything we do.
