Welcome to Estates


The Estates and Buildings Division at UEA is responsible for overseeing the smooth running of the campus, from maintaining the University’s buildings and grounds to managing the car parks and security.

Take a look at the Current works & projects on campus.


Barton House Central & East lifts out of service

Both Central and East lifts located in Barton House have been taken out of service due to defects. Contractors have been contacted to attend to both lifts. We apologies for any inconvenience cause and will provide updates in due course.

Union House lift out of service – UPDATE 10 May

The Union House lift in the Street has been taken out of service due to a defect. Unfortunately, there is a long lead time for the spare parts and we anticipate it will be three weeks before we can fix the problem and bring it back into service.

Heating on Campus – Changes to timings

From Thursday 4th May, the district heating system will run from the early hours of each day in order that working environments are at an acceptable temperature when staff arrive for work. We will then turn off the heating to non-residential buildings in the mornings and it will remain off for the remainder of each day. Please ensure that you bring appropriate clothing to cater for possible lower than usual office temperatures. Student residences are unaffected and the heating will operate as normal. This change is being made in connection with the major works being undertaken in the main Boiler House on Chancellors Drive.

Please report any exceptional circumstances to the Estates Helpdesk on  extension 2121.


If you spot a problem please contact our Helpdesk either on 01603 592121 or at
