EVENT - University of Leicester's new Freemens Village development and Masterplan update

25th April 2023: 6.00pm arrival. 6.30pm presentations and tour. 8.30pm close.


Join us for a presentation and tour of the University of Leicester's new Freemens Village as well as an update on the Campus Masterplan.

Our speakers are Kirsty Woodward, Interim Director of Estates and Sarah Peacock, Interim Director of Service Development and Resources.

The University of Leicester’s £150M student village development at Freemen’s was officially unveiled in Autumn 2022 at the start of the 2022/23 academic year.

The landmark regeneration project has seen derelict halls of residence and an open air car park transformed into a high-tech centre for teaching, working and living. At its heart is the four-storey Sir Bob Burgess Building, named after the University’s former late Vice-Chancellor, which comprises two large lecture theatres, flexible teaching spaces and a state of the art space for staff to work, meet and relax.

The site also includes accommodation for 1,200 students, a social hub including a food outlet and bar and a 555-space multi-storey car park. The project has also seen the sensitive refurbishment and extension of the Grade II-listed Freemen’s Cottages as the centrepiece of the scheme.

Freemen’s is the realisation of years of careful planning to deliver the very highest quality environment for our students to live and learn in, and was delivered by the University, equity partner and constructor EQUANS and funding partner Equitix.

The University’s 10 year Campus Masterplan has been developed to deliver substantial building refurbishments with some new developments, in order to tackle backlog maintenance and preserve the special character of our university, while transforming the facilities to deliver a welcoming and cohesive campus experience.
