The Digital Campus

The Digital Campus will enable students, staff and stakeholders to engage and meet their objectives through the use of relevant data and information any time, any place. It will allow the University to become “more joined up” and is far more than “just IT” as it will also involve significant culture and process change.

The Vision

To define, implement and maintain a high quality, integrated information environment, the “Digital Campus”, which is at the heart of the University.

The Digital Campus is a connected campus without boundaries, accessible however and whenever, and is applicable to the different stakeholders. The Digital Campus is every bit as important as the physical campus. It will be a creative environment for the University of Wolverhampton, the “University of Opportunity”:

  • An online environment, open to all members of the University community which enables and supports all University activity
  • A digital space which supports lifelong learning and personal development
  • A community and ecosystem that transcends traditional University boundaries and maintains the Academic Vision

The Digital Campus is created by achieving synergy between people, processes, systems and the ICT infrastructure.

The Digital Campus vision will be delivered through a series of projects and would form a significant part of the University’s forward investment programme to 2020.

A few words from the Vice-Chancellor

The Digital Campus

"The University of Wolverhampton aspires to create a world renowned digital campus, focused on providing an excellent learning and teaching experience for our staff and students. Given today’s technological advances, we view the digital campus as being just as important as the physical campus, achieving synergy between people, processes and systems. The creation of a digital campus marks a step change in how ICT is perceived and governed at the University, and how it contributes to the way the institution achieves its goals. It will contribute to everything we do - the way we recruit and retain students, the quality of the student and classroom experience and the way we deliver our courses and services. The digital campus will also provide a rich and exciting platform upon which the University can strengthen and underpin its academic, research and community activities."

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Geoff Layer
