With the campus once again becoming the focal point of the student experience, universities have the opportunity to reconsider how to make the best use of their spaces.

Taking an agile view and making the best use of new technologies, can transform campuses into a more enjoyable space for staff and students, while also making efficient use of facilities and meeting sustainability goals.

Alongside our expert panel we discussed how institutions can re-think their estate, what part technology has to play, and how the campus can be at the heart of a sustainable, enjoyable experience for students. Now and into the future.

We discussed...

  • New battery technology and how smarter power distribution can open up spaces
  • How an agile approach to facilities can make universities more sustainable
  • Don’t forget your people. How to ensure the campus meets the changing needs of staff and students

When you rely on your devices to study (and socialize) it’s essential to have somewhere to charge them. Many universities implement ‘Bring your own device’ schemes, but during high-traffic, high-stress periods like exam season, lacking places to power up is all too familiar – not to mention frustrating.

OE Electrics collaborates with educational venues to establish successful, digital learning environments. Our range of agile power solutions ensures access to power wherever students need it: lecture theatres, libraries, canteens, and halls of residence. Our new ANIMATE range allows flexible charging, ensuring a safe, socially distanced environment.
