Welcome to CUBO

The association for campus and commercial services professionals in higher and further education


How we support higher and further education

Campus and commercial services are vital to university and college life. Our members are responsible for the strategic and operational management of student residential accommodation and residence life programmes; catering, hospitality &retail; sport & physical activity; academic & commercial conferencing; events, including graduations; print, design & merchandising, soft facilities management, and various other services. They may run hotels, arts centres, nurseries and even the university’s digital services. By connecting, supporting and developing these professionals, CUBO helps to create excellent campus experiences for all. CUBO also administers the UUK/GuildHE Accommodation Code of Practice for university owned and managed student residences.
