We value our relationship with the local community
We are committed to engaging and consulting with the local community; we regularly engage with residents groups, councillors and businesses and our Community Matters newsletter shares university news and updates on projects and community initiatives. Throughout 2019 we also held regular consultation events sharing our plans to develop our historic estate and seeking feedback.
Community drop-in sessions
We hold termly drop-in sessions for local residents that provide an opportunity for individual members of the local community to discuss topics of concern to them with a representative from the university.
Due to current coronavirus restrictions, the university will hold its usual termly drop-in session via telephone appointments.
