Andrew Nightingale was Chair of the UUK Code Governance Board, which he led with distinction for many years. In 2005 he represented the higher education sector in a small group of industry professionals charged with drafting a fit-for-purpose Housing Code of Practice, which would satisfy the government and exempt university managed accommodation exemption from Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) accreditation.
Working closely with Governance Board colleagues and the Sector Advisory Group he made an exemplary contribution to the effective governance of the Code, including the oversight of a Universities UK review of administrative arrangements. Andrew was hugely supportive of CUBO, and the massive contribution it has made to the code over the years.
Director of Estate Management at Essex University until 2012, Andrew helped transform the Colchester Campus, providing students and staff with an inspiring environment in which to study and work. He established new campuses in Southend and Loughton, supported the development of University Campus Suffolk in partnership with the University of East Anglia, and championed links with surrounding communities.
A chartered building surveyor, Andrew trained and qualified with Hertfordshire County Council and then worked as Buildings Surveyor at the University of Kent for ten years before coming to Essex.
