main_libraryinterior.jpgAbout us

The Space and Property Management team are responsible for ensuring the best use of space within the University.  To do this we have an Asset Manager who looks after the lease and sale of property and a Property Data Officer who is responsible for maintaining the MICAD database.  The service also maintains a detailed and accurate record of space usage in the University through the MiCAD Intranet Property Register Database.  It is essential that the University supplies accurate data on space use as MiCAD is used to generate Estates Management Statistics (EMS) reports to HESA and Transparent Approach to Costing (TRAC) reports to HEFCE which directly affect the University's funding from the Government.
