Learning Spaces

Learning Spaces Strategy 2017-2020

The University of Leicester is committed to excellence in both its physical and digital environments:

We will support the development of a physical estate that supports student learning in the 21st century with a mix of formal, informal, flexible, social and common spaces to best suit our approaches to teaching and learning and to foster the engagement of students with their disciplines, with each other and with staff.
(University of Leicester Learning Strategy 2016-20)


The development of the University’s estate presents an opportunity to consider future needs; to assess the suitability of the current facilities and to adapt or replace them with well-designed, future-proofed spaces that will serve the University community for at least the next 20 years.  We are embarking on a bold plan of improvement and growth in our campus spaces. We will ensure that this will serve not only our teaching, learning and research activities in the UK and internationally, but also our community engagement and the role we play in the City of Leicester and our wider community.

Our learning spaces will enhance our academic experience, be welcoming, accessible, adaptable and connected. The Learning Spaces Strategy (PDF) sets out our commitments and priorities from 2017-2020.
