New campus infrastructure
We design, build and operate student accommodation and academic facilities, managing the entire project from drawing board to delivery.
We work with the UK’s best construction companies to ensure delivery on time and on budget. UPP provides bespoke campus infrastructure to suit the individual needs of our partners; from student rooms to lecture theatres and from leisure facilities to Eco Residences – UPP’s innovative and award winning approach to sustainable student accommodation can meet your needs.
UPP are experts in the transfer of part or all of a university’s existing residential estate. We take it on, managing it on our your behalf, typically for a period of between 40 to 50 years. By transferring operational risk to UPP we can often generate a capital receipt which can be used to invest in core teaching and research provision.
Refurbishment of transferred stock improves the student experience and ensures that demand for your accommodation remains sustainable for the long-term.
Our specialist facilities management team, provides our university partners with a complete campus infrastructure asset management service that includes hard and soft facilities management (FM), marketing and revenue management.
Local teams provide all on-site services, from building maintenance to security and cleaning. For universities, our asset management services provide an opportunity to reduce and fix the cost base for FM provision across their entire estate and improve the quality of service delivery.
