Brunel sells campus and plans restructure

June 14, 2002

Brunel University has sold its Twickenham campus and unveiled plans to further restructure while offering its staff "incentives for excellence".

The campus, a six-hectare riverside site, has been sold to Octagon, an upmarket house-builder, for an undisclosed sum. The cash will help Brunel deal with the real-terms funding cut it is due to receive for the coming academic year and pay for a £100 million investment programme.

The vice-chancellor has written to staff outlining how "each senior officer will have performance targets and will be accountable to a supervisor for achieving those targets".
