About the Event

Following on from a great turnout, thank you all, and a fantastic event last year in Birmingham we would like to cordially invite you to this year’s Digital Infrastructure Group conference – ‘Creating a Smart Campus to Solidify Security, Sustainability and the Student experience’. 

Smart campuses offer a plethora of opportunities to transform our institutions, optimising the physical workspaces, related assets and resources.

Over the last year we have seen more challenging times for the sector both technically and financially. Attracting students and giving them the best university experience is paramount to our continued success.

How we run our campus’s from the moment a student starts should be as seamless and stress free as possible. We must ensure:


  • How do we keep our campuses safe both on a physical and a technology level?
  • Lines between old school estates equipment (i.e. Building Management) are now blurred with the advent of IOT services. How do we address the security concerns inherent to this progress?
  • The provision of apps to track and safeguard students
  • Securing campus data – everything from the CCTV to research.


  • The carbon emissions produced by universities are increasingly under the spotlight. Current and prospective students expect transparency, accountability and – most importantly – action to address this.
  • How can we measure and achieve our net zero ambitions in a smart and transparent way
  • How do we monitor and manage our buildings, collecting and modelling data to improve energy efficiency?

Student Experience – 

  • The student experience is key to us all. Engagement can be greatly improved through a greater digital focus – we can empower students to:
  • Register their devices for Wi-Fi and access from the moment they’re accepted on a course
  • Immediately access library resources, book desks and view available transport links live
  • Virtually participate in live classes from off campus and catch up on-demand
  • Influence the design of their timetables
  • Provision all levels of kit from standard windows to high-end graphics stations, even from off campus

The conference looks to share these ideas, question and look how we can all learn from each other to improve our already great environments.

DIG24 is for those who implement, monitor and manage IT infrastructures & networks, as well as technology leaders. The programme will feature a great mix of sector-led presentations, interactive sessions, business showcases and insightful keynotes.

We look forward to seeing you at DIG24!
