How we spend our money
The biggest single item of expenditure in the University’s budget is staffing. Over 50% of the budget is spent on your lecturers, the support staff in your school, and all the professional staff across the University who make sure that everything works.
The rest of the University’s income is spent like this:
Library and IT supplies
Housing and maintenance
Professional and business
Additional 'big project' spend
Every year the University re-invests its surplus in big projects, like our state-of-the-art Science Building, cutting-edge teaching equipment, and improving your local teaching spaces. The University of Hertfordshire is committed to environmental management and performance and the pending update to the the University of Hertfordshire's Carbon Management Plan will support our Net Zero aspirations.
