Head of UCL Estates steps down

Andrew Grainger, director of estates at University College London, is leaving his post, while UCL vice-provost for operations Rex Knight will retire at the end of the year.

Grainger is stepping down after nine years in the role, Research Fortnight has learned, but will remain working at UCL on a part-time basis. Meanwhile Knight, who has been vice-provost for operations since 2009, announced to staff around Easter that he would retire from his post at the end of the calendar year. The responsibilities of his role include coordinating strategic planning across UCL.

A UCL spokesman confirmed that Grainger was leaving his role, but declined to comment on the reasons for his departure. The spokesman said Grainger would continue working on a part-time basis on the university’s project to build a campus in East London.
