Education Space


The Programme Board for Education Space has been created to encourage the efficient and creative use of the spaces we have, to share good practice around education space, and to develop the information infrastructure that will help us to deliver a world-class, education-centred estate.

The Board supports initiatives around education space at School and department level, as well as coordinating space-related work in Student Operations, Estate Management, and University Information Services.

The Board’s priorities are:

  • Consultation and feedback We are seeking the views of Schools, faculties and departments on education space at Cambridge. Members of the Programme Board will consult a wide range of students and colleagues in order to inform our plan of action. Any member of the University can submit their views via this webpage.
  • Data-gathering and modelling We are collecting as much information as possible about educational need and current patterns of space usage, and developing better modelling tools to process that data, to ensure that our recommendations are based on robust evidence.
  • Identifying and sharing good practice We are gathering examples of good practice, successful projects and innovative ideas around education space, from across the University and beyond, and sharing them as case studies on this website.
