Our Estate


The University Estate

The University was established as the University College of Hull in 1928 following an endowment from T R Ferens.  At first, student numbers were modest but, after the Second World War, the University College grew quickly, so that by the early 1950’s there were around 900 students. The Charter was granted in 1954, and over the next 25 years the University experiences a period of sustained growth.  Numbers grew steadily to around 5,900 FTE students in 1981, and the size of the estate grew proportionately.
