UCL 2034


Maintaining a sustainable estate to meet our aspirations

From our foundation in 1826, UCL has had a proud tradition of building innovative and high-quality buildings, many of which have broken new ground in university architecture.

Not all of the estate, however, is of high-quality – functionally or aesthetically – and investment in maintenance and upgrades has been inadequate for some years. This must be remedied.  

We acknowledge the importance of the quality of our estate in terms of contributing to our reputation and to the pride, morale and wellbeing of our staff and students. It is, therefore, a very high priority. The remodelling of the estate will also enable us to better substantiate our commitment to sustainability.
