Ground breaking partnership

In December 2011, UPP entered a 125 year partnership for the running of the entire university estate. A total investment of almost a quarter of a billion pounds and a transaction that still stands as the largest single estate transfer of a university residential estate to date.

UPP's close partnership with the University of Reading has helped to release capital and free up resources which the University plan to reinvest in teaching, research and improving the student experience.

Last year we welcomed over 120 staff, transferred from the University, and today our team works seamlessly with the University to ensure we deliver the very highest quality services and always contributing positively to the student experience.
