What is the Business Support?
We understand that if you are looking for a new working environment in a post-Covid-19 world, then it’s likely you don’t just want a seat and a desk: you want to contribute to and feel part of a supportive, collaborative, and socially minded community.
Located on the scenic Bishop Grosseteste University campus we have a range of tenancy options:
Start-ups - cost effective, self-contained, fully furnished office space with easy in and easy out terms, to include one allocated parking space away from the main University car park
