The Freedom of Information Act defines universities as a public authority, therefore they are subject to the Act’s requirements. Universities must respond to FOI requests and publish information through publication schemes.

This page of the FOI Directory provides a list of all UK universities and the FOI email addresses of universities. The list of universities’ email addresses should be used for making FOI requests and not inquiring about the potential study at universities, as sometimes happens.

A downloadable and viewable Google Spreadsheet with all the FOI contact details for Universities, as detailed below can be found here. 

I am a journalist and author. I am a journalist at the UK edition of WIRED magazine. In 2015, my first book Freedom of Information: A Practical Guide for UK Journalists, was published. My second book Reed Hastings: Building Netflix, was published in March 2020. I created FOI Directory in 2012 and have maintained it in my spare time ever since.
