The strategy will see £150 million invested to create vibrant campuses with cutting-edge facilities, with sustainability at its heart.
Date: 13 July 2022
We are proud to launch London Met’s new Estates Strategy. Through a transformational programme, we will invest £150 million into our buildings and spaces over ten years, to create vibrant, community-focused campuses with cutting-edge facilities.
Sustainability is a huge part of the strategy, which is backed by a commitment to being a carbon net-zero University by 2030, with all onsite electricity from renewable sources.
We will promote positive learning outcomes through a sense of belonging and identity with our Schools. Each will have its own heart on campus, consisting of academic offices, specialist teaching spaces, school offices, pastoral and academic support and independent learning spaces.
New courses in Nursing will be offered from 2023, through an expansion of our School of Human Sciences, and our learning centres and libraries will be reconfigured to support the changing digital learning requirements of our students. The exciting project to redevelop the Holloway campus Learning Centre and Science Centre for these aims is already underway.
We will create a new heart to Holloway campus that feels like home for staff and students alike, with a new entrance and layout that allows us to better interact with our city through community-accessible areas for events and more.
The Estates Strategy will create a modern, vibrant and digitally-enabled University that gives our staff and students an environment that will allow them to thrive.
