We provide professional estates and facility services to enable The Open University to deliver its strategic vision. Our aim is to provide a customer focussed service which provides value for money.
We aim to be responsive to our customer needs; we acknowledge that the University and its departments are constantly changing as a result of an evolving higher education environment.
Estates provide a range of professional services to the University, including project management, space management, maintenance, engineering, energy management, property management, health & safety, grounds management, travel to work advice, portering, security, cleaning, catering, transport, events, postal and reception services.
Our aim is to be responsive to our customer's needs, responding to changes within the University and within an evolving higher education environment. We review continuously our activities and processes to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of the University whilst at the same time ensuring the service that we provide is professional, effective and value for money.
We aim to communicate effectively about all of these services with Faculties and Departments across the University. We are continuously striving for improvement in all that we do and how we communicate with the wider University community.
