University Games readies for UK expansion with new offices in Hertfordshire

This week will see University Games bid farewell to the building that has been the ‘home and heart’ of the Paul Lamond Games business for more than 25 years, as the firm opens the doors on a new chapter, and a new UK headquarters in Royston, Hertfordshire.

The new, more modern, office will allow for further expansion as part of University Games strategic growth plans this year and beyond, as the company looks to move into its next phase, bolstered with a portfolio of more than 700 games, puzzles, and gifts.

Nostalgic about the time spent at the firm’s former offices in Islington, Richard Wells, managing director of University Games, said: “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.”

The new Office address is:

University Games UK Ltd
4 The Lanterns,
16 Melbourn Street,
Royston,
Hertfordshire,
SG8 7BX
