Edge Hill University boasts a vibrant campus community located in 160 stunning acres near Ormskirk in West Lancashire.
Lakes, green spaces and even a beach can be found alongside award winning building developments which reflect almost 130 years of history and innovation. New buildings help to fulfil our vision of a visually inspiring, sustainable environment, and include the flagship £17 million Creative Edge building, which opened in 2013, a new Arts Centre building that houses the Rose and Studio Theatres, new Biosciences and Geosciences facilities and a £13.5 million Student Hub.
The new £30 million sports complex opened in September 2015 and allows students, staff and the local community to enjoy some of the best sports facilities in the country. Facilities include a 25m swimming pool, 100-station fitness suite, sauna, steam room, aerobics studio, and a multi-court sports hall with viewing gallery.
Continued development of on-campus accommodation continues, and Palatine Court, with a further 144 en suite bedrooms, opened its doors in 2015, while another 168 rooms will be available from September 2016. This will bring the total number of students that can live on campus to 2,259.
Work is also now under way on the £13.5m Technology Hub, a bespoke new home for the University’s Department of Computing, providing classrooms, offices and a new lecture theatre.

The University’s commitment to sustainability has been recognised with a string of green awards and as part of this vision all new buildings on campus incorporate low carbon technologies and energy efficient lighting, heating and glazing. For the second year running, the University has been given Green Flag status – the national benchmark for parks and green spaces in the UK – for maintaining an attractive, safe and welcoming campus.
Edge Hill University was judged the safest campus in the North West for the third year running by the Complete University Guide.
