Campus Infrastructure Development

Terms of Reference


The 2017-2021 University Strategic Plan emphasises the need for “facilities and high-quality teaching and research areas which are fit for purpose is critical in in achieving our objectives. The quality of our facilities is a cornerstone of our teaching and learning strategy.

The key outcomes of our campus strategy will be:

  • The creation of a master plan of redevelopment of the Anse Royale Campus
  • The creation of high-quality teaching and learning facilities for all curriculum areas
  • An open, safe and secure campus accessible to students, staff and the general public (Libraries, Restaurants, internet access, sports facilities, residential accommodation)
  • Maintenance of the campus infrastructure and building to a high standard using long-term maintenance planning and maximising resources.
  • Maximising recycling opportunities and sufficient and appropriate digital storage.
  • Protecting and developing biodiversity through sound ecological management of the habitats on campus.

Our key definition of success for our systems in 2020 includes:

  • Ergonomically designed – with a people focus; student success orientated; straight to the desktop, simple to use, needing to be acted upon only once and predictive of necessary people action and interaction.
  • Ethical and environmentally sound.
  • Technologically integrated – we need to develop a set of core systems that seamlessly talk to one another and provide and utilise critical sets of data that are stored just once but used many times.
  • Externally connected – outward facing so they connect with wider societal developments and communicate with them in a seamless manner – for example, integrating our Virtual Learning Environment with public social networks
  • Resilient, robust and coherent – flexible enough to be adaptable to new developments and to link into partners’ and other stakeholders’ (including students’) own resources.
  • Value for money and return on investment.
  • Systems which are SMART, transparent and accessible.
  • Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) – across all areas of The Universities activities (HR, Finance, IT, Housekeeping, Student Services, our managed Learning Environment (IFNOSS or alternative EBS, BlackBoard). In accordance with quality assurance and improvement.”
