Preparing for the future - University Games is on the move

This week, University Games will bid farewell to a building that has been the home and heart of the Paul Lamond Games part of the business for over 25 years and opens the doors on a new chapter, as it moves to new offices in Royston, Hertfordshire

The new more modern office will allow for further expansion as part of University Games strategic growth plans. With an impressive portfolio of over 700 games, puzzles and gifts, following the acquisition of The Lagoon Group last summer, the business is more than ready to move onto its next phase.

Richard Wells, Managing Director of University Games, is nostalgic about the time at the former offices in Islington, “The Newington Green office has been the hub of the Paul Lamond business for many years and the home of the combined University Games group for the last three years. We have many great memories there and we are certainly a little sad to be leaving. As a business we experienced some significant changes during our time there, especially over the last few years as both Paul Lamond Games and The Lagoon Group have come together under the University Games banner.

“However, we now need to look to the future and with the growth we have experienced over the past couple of years and our ambitious plans for the future now is the right time to move to larger and more modern premises. The new offices have plenty of character and will offer us greater flexibility to develop and grow the business over the coming years” added Richard.

The new Office address is: 
University Games UK Ltd
4 The Lanterns,
16 Melbourn Street,
Royston,
Hertfordshire,
SG8 7BX
Tel: 0207 254 0100 (Same number as before)
