Stephen Dale – Director of Estates and Facilities
The University of Hull has been changing the way people think for over 90 years. The University’s motto, Lampada Ferens, translates as ‘carrying the light of learning’ and over the years, we’ve shared that light with thousands of people from across the world. As England’s 14th-oldest university, we have a proud heritage of academic excellence and a history of creating and inspiring life-changing research.
The University of Hull was founded in 1927 – originally as University College Hull. The foundation stone was laid the following year by the Duke of York (later King George VI, of The King’s Speech fame) and opened for business with 39 students and 14 ‘one-person’ departments. The University now has more than 16,000 students and around 2,500 employees, including more than 1,000 academic staff.
After our students and staff, our physical and digital estate is the largest single enabler for our world-class teaching and research and provides a fantastic student experience.
Our estate is large and varied with the main campus covering over 153 acres, with over 106 buildings of different ages, complexities, listing status, physical condition and use, ranging from grade two and grade two star listed properties to brand new state-of-the-art learning and research spaces.
The estate is generally located on our main campus on the outskirts of the City along with a selection of additional satellite buildings across the region.
A focus in recent years has been delivery of an unprecedented level of capital development across the University with over £300m being invested in new build or refurbishment projects with a planned strategic programme of further significant investment over the next 10 years focusing on transformation and provision of world class, sustainable facilities and services to guarantee the best possible experience and outcomes for our students, staff and visitors.
