Three men have been charged with conspiring to steal more than £2 million from a university.
Two men, aged 35 and 36, from Leicester, and a 33-year-old, from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, are accused of conspiring to steal £2,036,618 from the University of Sussex in October 2010.
It is alleged that money paid by the university for building work on new student accommodation was unlawfully diverted to an unrelated account, said Sussex Police.
The prosecution follows an investigation by the force's major fraud unit.
The men are due to appear at Leicester Magistrates' Court.
