Campus spaces and places: call for researcher / group to help answer some fundamental questions

University Design Forum, AUDE (the Association of University Directors of Estates) and Willmott Dixon, one of the UK’s leading construction companies, have embarked upon an exciting research project ‘Campus spaces and places: Impact on student outcomes’ and we are now looking for a researcher/group to help us answer some fundamental questions, including “How can we measure the value of the Higher Education built environment in terms of impact on students and student outcomes? What types of campus and what campus facilities deliver the most benefit for our students?”

In February 2021, this group of organisations initiated a multi-year research project which aims to answer core questions about the impact of different types of campus places and spaces on student outcomes, and an initial literature review has been carried out that we would now like to build upon.

More details about the  researcher / group requirement can be found in the full research tender
