Space Management

The Space Management team optimises University space in line with University objectives and relevant legislation. The team leads the implementation and development of the University’s Space Management Policy, which supports the efficient, effective and equitable use of space.

Space is the University’s largest cost after payroll and an important resource for teaching, learning and research and the team provides the University ability to plan, design and manage this resource.

We also survey key spaces periodically to assess their utilisation. We then make recommendations to senior management to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
