Developing our campus

We have taken the opportunity of our 50th anniversary in 2015 to build on principles outlined in the University’s original development plan from 1963.

We want to develop a blueprint for the next 50 years to support our ambitions to remain one of the UK’s best universities and to be globally recognised for our work.

We must ensure we deliver long-term benefits to our local communities, and improve our intellectual, physical, economic and cultural connections with the city of Canterbury.
