Commercial Properties team

The Commercial Properties team supports all areas of University commercial property including the Knowledge Gateway, our research and technology park on our Colchester Campus.

We are building a strong business community at the Knowledge Gateway.

We work closely with the Research and Enterprise Office to identify opportunities for our tenants to work with our researchers or benefit from our other business support services.
