Infrastructure development

At Kaplan, we make long-term investments in our partners’ success.

Graham Holdings, our parent company, has a market valuation in excess of $2.5 billion. This financial strength enables us to make significant investments in the success of our education partners, helping them to transform their campus facilities and enhance the learning experience for their students.

Investment across the board

Recent infrastructure investments have included:

  • Cutting-edge residential facilities
  • State-of-the-art classrooms
  • New libraries with expanded digital collections
  • Dining facilities
  • IT centres and campus-wide wireless networks

We believe the high satisfaction, retention and completion rates of Kaplan students are directly linked to the support we have been able to provide to them, and to our partner institutions.

Infrastructure development case studies

Global Point feature block

Global Point, Nottingham, UK

Our $117 million financial commitment to our partnership with Nottingham Trent University (NTU) led to the 2014 opening of Global Point, a city-centre residence with 449 bedrooms and a state-of-the-art academic support centre. With our student recruitment support, the Global Point facility has been fully occupied since opening. The residence is now also available to students preparing for degrees at The University of Nottingham.

Lansdowne point accommodation

Lansdowne Point, Bournemouth, UK

We invested $150 million in this academic and residential facility, located in the heart of Bournemouth University’s Lansdowne campus in Bournemouth. The 15-floor facility includes 393 ultra-modern rooms, an innovative learning centre (referred to as the Knowledge Hub), and an on-site 100-seat restaurant.

Franklin Point feature block

The Globe and Franklin Point, Glasgow, UK

We committed $40m to address a shortage of residential beds for University of Glasgow students in the city’s West End. The investment allowed for the opening of 2 new residence halls in 2012, Franklin Point and The Globe, providing 276 spacious living accommodations and an immediate boost to student enrolments and retention.

Liverpool International College development

Liverpool International College (LIC), Liverpool, UK

To support our extended partnership with the University of Liverpool, we are investing in a brand new college and residence building. Due to open in 2019, the new on-campus facility will provide 47,000 sq ft of teaching space, 259 spacious bedrooms and an integrated learning hub, helping to attract more international students than ever before.
