The Basingstoke University vision
Basingstoke and Deane is the area in the south of England, within easy reach of London, where there currently is very limited higher education provision. Yet, with the local further education colleges attracting 6,000 students per year, the majority of whom leave the area in search of higher education opportunities further afield, there is great untapped potential.
Basingstoke can offer a range of good value options for a campus location and for student and staff accommodation, as it is in one of the most affordable areas in north Hampshire and Berkshire.
There is a growing momentum behind Basingstoke’s evolving success story. The council and its partners are reimagining the town centre’s vibrant future, breathing new life into existing assets and bringing new attractions to its leisure park. All this is focused on ensuring the town remains a regional draw with a growing portfolio of mixed-use regeneration, retail, residential and commercial development projects available for inward investment.
A university campus is part of this future, and the council is ready to invest with the right partner to make this ambition a reality.
