Living Campus

The University is a major land owner in Manchester and is committed to protect and enhance local biodiversity. A Living Campus Plan is currently being developed. The Living Campus Plan will support delivery of the University’s Environmental Sustainability Strategy, specifically to address the challenges of a growing urban campus alongside the opportunities a healthy environment provides for people and nature.

It is envisaged that The Living Campus Plan will support the development of The University of Manchester estate so that it is memorable, distinctive, with a strong sense of place that contributes to the health and wellbeing of staff, students, visitors and the surrounding local community.
