Like many 'red brick' universities, the University of Sheffield's estate is made up of an interesting and varied mix of buildings, from those traditional 'red brick' Victorian buildings, through to classic modernism and contemporary international.
With more than 25,000 students and 7,000 staff, we're very aware of the links between excellence in the built environment and academic excellence, and these links are at the heart of our ongoing programme to grow, develop and effectively manage our estate.
We are committed to meeting the expectations and needs of everyone using our buildings, amenities and services, identifying and removing any barriers to building use. Accessibility is at the heart of all our new building development. Ensuring that our older buildings are fully accessible is more of a challenge, but we continue to seek out innovative ways of re-organising and re-developing our older stock to ensure that it meets today's standards.
