In 2020, the University launched a pilot project to explore different ways of working. The pilot will help us understand the ways in which space on campus can be best utilised in the post-pandemic world.
The Estate Development team project manage new building, refurbishment and infrastructure projects to improve Lancaster University's facilities. Find out more about current and past campus development projects below.Watch the Video
The University has invested more than £220 million in development projects since 2013 to build a campus that can support world-class teaching and research. Since the University declared a climate emergency in 2020, the capital development programme has been reshaped to dramatically reduce the impact that new-build developments have on the environment. As the University continues to grow, we are being smarter with space - repurposing existing spaces and adapting the way we work for the good of the planet.
Drawing on learning following the impact of the pandemic, the changes in the way we now work, the Estate Strategy presents new sustainable space options and seeks to accommodate our demographic growth forecasts against our carbon reduction targets by maximising opportunities to recycle and repurpose our existing space.Estate Strategy

Click the images below to view details of the proposed plans for a 16.8MW solar farm that will help reduce the University's energy related carbon emissions.
The University declared a Climate Emergency in November 2020 and announced its aim to become carbon neutral by 2035 and more specifically, carbon neutral in its energy emissions by 2030.
To reduce carbon emissions, the University must electrify its heat generation and the most feasible option for this is the development of a solar farm.
