Keith Lilley, Dirctor of Estates & Facilities Management

The Estates and Facilities Management at the University of Sheffield are responsible for maintaining the University's buildings and gardens, managing its property and facilities and procuring new buildings.   

The University's estate contains a wide and varied range of properties which understandably present their own challenges. Some, such as the Arts Tower, are of great architectural importance and must be preserved as part of our national heritage, whilst others such as the award winning Information Commons, are modern and sophisticated in their design and servicing.

Our staff will continue to strive for excellence in everything they put their hand to. The integration of these services does provide a unique opportunity to improve and build on the firm foundations that have been achieved over many years.

Student Experience Survey 2014
I am delighted that Sheffield Students voted our facilities as the best in the UK as part of the THE Student Experience survey. This is a great testament to the investment that we have made in developing and delivering World Class facilities. This assessment by our students provides a great sense of pride in the work that our staff within EFM continue to deliver for the University.

The Diamond -  Time Lapse

The Diamond

Work on our £81 million building at Jessop East is well underway and today we’ve announced the building’s new name – The Diamond.

The new name was unveiled at the site by Paul Blomfield, MP and Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Keith Burnett, who, along with other colleagues, were given a site tour and progress report by Project Director Allan Grantham from Balfour Beatty.

Speaking after the name reveal, Sir Keith Burnett said that The Diamond would bring enormous benefits, not only to the University community but to the city and the wider region, “As well as creating a fantastic place for teaching and learning, The Diamond will also have a major impact on our city, bringing jobs and an annual contribution of almost £21 million each year to the Sheffield economy.”


Scheduled to open by September 2015, the new building is the lynchpin of the University’s estates development over the next decade, creating state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities at the heart of the campus.
