Campus life

Our beautiful campus is one of our greatest assets. We are like a city within a city with all our buildings and amenities on a single site.

Our striking architecture and 250-acres of parkland will inspire you to make the most of your time here and not only that but it has all the amenities of a small town. You will find bars, shops, a hair salon, opticians, travel agents, a concert hall, fine art gallery, geology museum and major banks on campus. You will also be able to take advantage of the fruit stall and regular Farmer’s Markets that take place here.

In addition you will have access to all of the University's facilities such as the sports centre, library, outstanding nurseries, research facilities, faith support, wellbeing services, staff clubs and networks.
