Universities: Closed Estates or Integrated Campuses?

This event has already taken place.

Universities UK’s most recent figures show that London universities contribute at least £5.8bn a year to the UK economy.

Given the rising importance of the knowledge economy to London, New London Architecture are holding a half-day conference to ask what the future looks like for higher education estates in London. Find out more about the event on their website.

Our Research Manager, Kat Hanna, will be there to speak about our recent report Spaces to Think, which examines how London’s existing universities and innovation districts are evolving and sets out recommendations on how they can be encouraged to grow.

The conference will ask how universities can maximise their space in terms of use, energy efficiency and providing value for money in this highly competitive sector, and explore whether London universities are making enough space for collaboration with business to maintain and grow London’s global reputation.
