Established in 2001, the University is worth more than £250 million to the local economy (doubling local economic growth rates) and has created more than 3,000 new jobs.
Over £180 million has been invested in the stunning Brayford Pool campus that has transformed a city centre brownfield site, revitalised the area and attracted investment from the retail, leisure and property sectors.
