We’re a university that never stands still – a catalyst for change: empowering our community to make a radical impact in the region, across the UK and around the world. We nurture entrepreneurs and develop tomorrow’s leaders, innovators and trailblazers.

With less than a year to go before the opening of our new Spectra Building at the University of Hertfordshire, we have an amazing opportunity for organisations and individuals.

If you share our vision to create an inspiring, dynamic hub for innovation and excellence in physics, engineering and computer science, and you want to benefit from giving back to the community – now is your chance. With a donation of £150 or more you can sponsor our flagship building and make a positive difference to our students and researchers’ experience at Herts.

Our new building will be the home of world-leading teaching and research, housing our new Wolfson Centre for Biodetection and Instrumentation Research, state-of-the-art wind tunnels, flight simulators, and computer labs which will inspire and equip our students, staff and researchers for success. Our students will have space to collaborate and socialise, enhancing the sense of community within the School as well as encouraging collaboration across different disciplines, with exciting potential for our research.

It will also help us provide businesses with the right expertise, facilities and entrepreneurial networks to achieve growth. Enhancing our reputation as an innovative and dynamic institution, we will continue to deliver our skills and experience to local and regional businesses, providing world-changing research and highly skilled graduates, while showcasing the best in innovation and sustainability and benefitting businesses and the local community.

Make your mark

Thousands of people have a connection with the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science – and now is your chance to contribute to the facilities for the next generations of students and researchers at Herts.

Donations will directly contribute to funding the equipment within our new building and will ensure our students can benefit from the best facilities possible for years to come. And it provides a unique opportunity to have your name displayed in this incredible space.

All donations of £150 or more will entitle you to have your name displayed within the entrance area of the building in perpetuity – a permanent display of your connection with the University of Hertfordshire. Donations over £500 guarantee recognition as a School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science patron, with greater prominence on our donor wall. Spaces are limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.

As a donor you will be invited to an opening event where you can see your name on display and view the facilities you have contributed towards.

The deadline to register for the donor wall and for payment has now passed.
