Campus life

Our main campus is situated in the heart of the stunning city of York, with our dedicated Sports Park just 1 mile away.

Our campus is right in the centre of town. It's a place where modern buildings meet Victorian architecture, where you can study in specialist learning spaces, and unwind in award-winning gardens.

Our students love the sense of community they feel on campus and the Students' Union is at the heart of this. It's a place where you can embrace all that student life has to offer.

We're an actively eco-conscious university. We've installed solar panels and heat pumps on our main campus and accommodation sites, and planted more than 1,000 trees over the past few years. Many of our courses feature modules focused on sustainability and the environment.
