Brunel is transforming lives

The impact of our work at Brunel University London reaches far beyond the campus boundary. We are tackling disease, enhancing quality of life, preserving the environment, advancing technology, improving sports performance and providing world-class education. However, much of this work relies upon support from outside the university.

Many of our students go on to become leaders in their professional and academic fields, some work for global brands, some start their own businesses, others become the next generation of scientists, teachers, nurses and organisational leaders. Your support is vital to our students.

You can make a big difference to Brunel’s future. We are truly grateful to the alumni, staff and friends of Brunel University who already fund our work through philanthropic donations. Your support in this way is vital to enriching the life and work of the university and we would like to invite you to help make a difference.

There are various areas in need of your support and if you care passionately about something, the chances are Brunel does too. So, if you would like to play your part in shaping and sustaining our future, please take a look below to find out how you can get involved and make a difference:

Building Brunel

With your support, we can continue to build the Brunel of tomorrow. After multi-millions of pounds investment in recent years to create dynamic learning and research spaces including state of the art labs, modern lecture theatres and leading sports and performance facilities, we now have even greater plans for the future. Your donations are the building blocks to this development. With your support we can lay the foundations for a bigger and better Brunel, ensuring campus infrastructure is outstanding, student facilities and accommodation are cutting edge and research can be undertaken in world-class facilities underpinned by international collaborations and partnerships.

Niftylift Laboratory

Niftylift is a company founded and led by Brunel graduate and Honorary award recipient Roger Bowden. Alongside Roger’s wide-ranging support of Brunel’s students and intitiatives, Niftylift has also contributed to Building Brunel through providing both expertise and funding for the Niftylift Design Studio in Engineering Design. This laboratory with its cutting edge equipment facilitates independent and exploratory learning through computer-based technology. This complements and extends the students’ lecture programmes to provide a deeper and more rounded learning experience.

Cultural Brunel

Brunel University London provides a rich and diverse backdrop that goes far beyond the lecture theatre. With over 100 nationalities represented on campus we are proud to celebrate the rich tapestry and diversity of Brunel’s community and with your support we can continue to encourage our students to explore all aspects of their potential, not only through academic achievement but also through a vibrant programme of artistic, cultural and sporting encounters.

You can support our cultural initiatives in many ways from sponsoring cultural events such as concerts and exhibitions to donating towards Arts Centre awards to provide non-music degree students with music lessons.Did you know that Brunel Archives holds documents and artefacts that provide evidence of the rich history of the University? We also house and manage the archives of the British and Foreign Schools Society. The Archives are delighted to receive donations and contributions to support and grow these collections. We also gratefully receive college memorabilia, books, academic papers, photographs, and much more, all of which paint a lasting picture of Brunel’s history.

Brunel’s Arts Centre provides talented musicians with support for their musical tuition through the Music Awards scheme, which is partially funded through donations from graduates and supporters.

The Music Awards recognise that the experience of University is greater than just what happens in the classroom or Lecture Theatre at Brunel, we are committed to enriching the cultural life of our students and also, through regular concerts and performances, the life of the local community.
