The English higher education sector has listed buildings which amount to 2,052,293 m2 at around 100 institutions. We do not have figures for the number of individual listed buildings but estimate that this floor space represents around 2,000 buildings. We do not have information showing the number of listed buildings designated as in need of significant repair.

Within the FE sector a total of 107 FE colleges submitted returns in 2006 saying that they had listed buildings. The total gross internal floor of listed buildings based on those returns is 446,477 m2.
