Keeping you informed
We are investing £200 million in our vision for ‘a better campus for a better University’ – creating work, study and living spaces that meet the needs of one of the world’s leading academic institutions and futureproofing our campus for decades to come.
We want to keep you informed about our plans and progress along the way – as well as regular news updates, we will host webinars, which will give you the opportunity to get more detail and have your questions answered.
Your questions answered
Below are the questions and answers that we didn’t have a chance to cover in our live webinar:
- Are there any plans to improve the accessibility for students with physical disabilities accessing the library?
The Library refurbishment is a key project with the Education and Research Investment Program (ERIP). The Estates project team will review accessibility as part of the planned Library works.
- Will there be independent food providers in the future?
The re-procurement of the Chartwells contract in August 2023 will provide us with an opportunity to ensure that the catering services on campus meet the needs of our diverse campus community. This could include a mix of local, independent, national and/or international providers who share the values of Sussex to provide ethically sourced food.
- What is the current status of the University (academic) space policy?
The Estates Space Management policy covering Academic Space is under review. Through the Education and Research investment Program (ERIP), Estates will concentrate first on the Professional Services Space Project before engaging resources into the assessment and optimisation of Academic space.
- How long will the space planning for Professional Services take?
The Professional Services Space Planning Project is a priority in the Education and Research Investment Program (ERIP). Estates will soon enter the planning phases and continue this work through 2022. The aim is to potentially start to make physical changes to the work environment from April 2023 onwards. This is all subject to Governance review and further planning.
- Can you confirm what the details are around the Student Union flexible recreation space?
It is not possible to provide details at this time. The Education and Research Investment Program (ERIP) has provision for the development of Student Union flexible recreation space. The Estates Masterplan will require further assessment to determine the appropriate space and location for a new Student Union space
