Notes

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 students are studying on a campus at a substantial distance from where the main provider is based, such that it would be regarded as not being in the same city/town. Greater London can be treated as a single location. This is to facilitate analysis of geographic patterns of study.
  • A separate campus identifier should be used when a merger takes place, to identify any merged providers as separate campuses if they fit the criteria specified.
  • Campus identifiers can only be used where a student can be associated with a single site. It is recognised that because of the flexibility of study patterns adopted by some providers, it will be impossible to say categorically that some students are assigned to a particular campus.
  • Although this field is compulsory, in the majority of cases, it will default to the generic value A indicating the entire provider or main campus.
  • Office for Students and Research England expect separate campus identifiers for any part of the provider funded separately e.g. within 0151 London University (Institutes and activities)

A provider that wishes separately to identify campuses may do so by using any alphanumeric character except for A in this field. Only those CAMPID codes submitted to HESA as part of the Institution profile collection can be returned in this field.
