In order to further the support that the AUE offers its members and their institutions, collaborations have been developed with other organisations in the Higher Education and Building Services sectors.

The AUE is currently represented on the executive committees of the following organisations:

HEEAF - Higher Education Estates Association Forum.  This is a forum which is represented by any association which has an input to H.E. estates functions.

HEDQF - Higher Education Design Quality Forum - Originally created by RIBA, this forum is a mix of professionals from H.E. estates departments and architects / consultants who work on H.E. projects.

EAUC - Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges - working to promote sustainability in H.E. and F.E.

BSRIA - Building Services Research and Information Association - working with the AUE to provide training and member discounts as well as H.E. research projects.
