Become a partner

It takes partnership to deliver the best campus experiences. A CUBO corporate partnership provides brand visibility and direct access to the people responsible for some £2.5 billion of HE commercial services. 

Five good reasons to partner with CUBO

  • The UK HE sector is growing, with applications expected to rise from 700,000 to over one million in the next four years
  • Commercial services contribute an estimated 6% of UK university income and £2.5 billion to the economy
  • CUBO brings all commercial services under one roof: accommodation, retail, catering, conferencing, sport, nurseries, security, soft FM, residence life and more
  • Connect with 118 HE and FE institutions and over 1000 commercial decision makers and influencers
  • Understand the challenges and needs of this important sector. 

Choose from three partnership levels


Year-round digital brand promotion, access to key contacts at member universities and colleges, access to free online events with CUBO members, CUBO updates, and the chance to host a virtual event with CUBO members.


All the benefits of the Silver partnership plus in-person networking and exhibiting at our flagship Summer Conference, featuring the prestigious annual CUBO Awards.


Comprehensive, year- round, high-profile brand marketing and multiple opportunities to showcase your services and engage face-to-face with CUBO members, including awards sponsorship, hosting/ sponsoring a conference session and participation in all three CUBO conferences.

It has certainly been a huge benefit to be a partner of CUBO. The round table sessions and the virtual conference were so valuable to us to understand the current struggles and successes in the University sector.
