The Higher Education Design Quality Forum is and independent organisation which exists to promote high quality design in university campuses, buildings and facilities, in the knowledge that this enhances teaching, learning, research and public engagement.

HEDQF strives to maintain a balance of representation from higher education (both academics and estates professionals) and from architecture, design, engineering and construction.

As such, we are delighted to confirm that Ferco's membership has been approved. We look forward to attending future HEDQF events and discussing the application of design in university teaching spaces.

HEDQF achieves its objectives by organising tours, workshops and debates across the UK plus overseas tours and a topic-based annual conference. The outcome of these events and research undertaken by HEDQF is made available to its members and the public using online and printed publications, exhibitions and film.

HEDQF was formed in the early 1990s but has since been established as a registered and charitable company.

HEDQF has a membership of over 100 organisations including its founder members comprising 31 universities, the Association of University Directors of Estates and 50 other organisations and companies.
