It’s all here. A home to make your own. A library that’s much more than bookshelves. A sports centre fit for pros in the making, first timers, and everything in between. Lecture halls and classrooms kitted out with everything you need to succeed. Bars and an and SU that don’t need a taxi to get to.

Investing in the outstanding
We believe that where you study and the way you study can make a world of difference to your life opportunities.
We’ve studied how students like to use our campus and built outstanding new spaces that not only prepare you for the world of work, but are also inspiring to be around.
That’s why we’ve invested over £350m to make our campus one of outstanding study spaces, sports facilities, living quarters, collaborative hideaways and simulated work places.
Whatever subject you study we’ll make sure you’re developing the skills and knowledge employers want in our specialist facilities. That might be studios where you can unleash your ideas and experiment freely, a simulated operating theatre for you to become confident with clinical skills, or virtual and augmented reality.
You’ll find all the information about the facilities for your subject area on our subject pages.Visit our undergraduate subject pages Visit our postgraduate subject pages
New for 2024. Our £35m student life redevelopment
Ensuite accommodation, a new Students’ Union and outdoor spaces built just for you. Sound good? We’ve designed it in collaboration with our current students to become the new social heart of the campus.
Right at the centre of the development will be the brand-new £8.5m Students’ Union (SU) facility. The building will feature flexible indoor spaces which can be used for different day and night-time events. There will be society rooms, informal open spaces and the technology to create more interactive experiences. And the social spaces will spill out into the outdoors too. Think open air cinema. Food markets. Or just space to meet, relax, belong.
Alongside our social space we’ve planned our newest accommodation. Our halls are already in the top 5 nationally, as voted by students in the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2022. And we’re investing £23.6m to add another 232 ensuite rooms to allow as many students as possible to enjoy our outstanding student experience.
The new developments will contribute to a campus atmosphere that will inspire you, both academically and socially. Providing space to breathe and develop your potential.
A sustainable campus
When it comes to sustainability there’s a lot going on to reduce our carbon footprint. From using energy from renewable sources to ensuring halls of residence have the most efficient insulation systems. The campus is buzzing with ideas that promote sustainable development. There’s our ‘green’ roofs’, and you might also spot some spiky friends enjoying our campus, as we’re hedgehog-friendly too.
