The Property Office Team provides a professional property advisory and asset management service to the University. Our work is primarily focused on managing the University’s Science and Enterprise Park and supporting professional and academic colleagues across the University on issues relating to the granting of rights, occupation and use of facilities and space by non-university organisations and individuals.

How we support the University

We provide a comprehensive property advisory service to the University on a wide and diverse range of property related matters. We play a key role supporting the work of our colleagues across the University, especially in the Sports Development Centre, Research and Enterprise Office and all the Schools, which is principally focused on the management of all non-university organisations or individuals using or wanting to use space or facilities within our campuses. 

We are responsible for the management of the Science and Enterprise Park and work closely with all our Campus Partners and Science Park based colleagues to help them get the most out of being part of our dynamic innovation community.

Acting on behalf of the University, we also work closely with external stakeholders and partners on a wide range of property related matters.
