Welcome to Facilities

The Facilities Service is proud to provide a wide range of services that supports the needs of the University community and which enhance our students experiences of University life whilst studying in Sunderland.

Over the last decade Facilities has played a key role in transforming the University's estate into a contemporary learning, working and living environment, comprised of modern, fit for purpose and well-managed buildings.

The University's estate provides a sense of community, is safe and sensitive to the needs of the environment. Our teams of dedicated staff work hard in managing the estate and facilities to ensure students, staff and visitors have a good experience.

Our flagship Residential Service offers a wide range of high standard accommodation supplemented by a 24/7 support network that ensures our students make a smooth transition to independent living.

Students and staff with children can take advantage of our excellent childcare provision at St. Mary's where our aim is to continue the high standard care that a child receives at home, in a healthy, secure but stimulating environment.

We still have much to achieve but our vision for the future is clear; to provide inspirational, high quality and sustainable campus environments supported by a range of services that meet and exceed the expectations of our community.
