Campus identifiers used in the HESA Staff record must be consistent with those submitted by the HEI as part of the Institution profile record.

The criteria for assessing whether a campus identifier is appropriate are as follows:

  • A separate campus identifier should be used if a substantial number of staff are located on a campus at a significant distance from where the main HEI is based, such that it would be regarded as not being in the same city/town. In this respect Greater London can be treated as a single entity.
  • A separate campus identifier should be used when a merger takes place, to identify any merged HEIs as separate campuses if they otherwise fit the specified criteria.
  • Campus identifiers can only be used where a contract can be associated with a single site. It is recognised that because of the flexibility of employment patterns adopted by some HEIs, it will be impossible to say categorically that some staff are assigned to a particular campus. If this is the case then code A should be used. A HEI that wishes separately to identify campuses may do so by using any character except for A. Only those CAMPID codes submitted to HESA as part of the Institution profile record can be returned in this field.
  • In the majority of cases, the campus identifier will default to the generic value A indicating the entire HEI or main campus.
  • In England, HEFCE expect separate campus identifiers to be used where any part of the HEI is funded separately e.g. 0151 London University - Senate Institutes.

There may be cases where a campus is returned in the Staff record but not the Student record, e.g. research sites. Please liaise with colleagues responsible for making the student returns to ensure that details of all sites are returned in the Institution profile record, which replaces the Campus Information System from 2012/13.
