Our home for over 70 years
Over 10, 000 staff and students are based mainly on the St. Johnís Campus, which is set in a lovely parkland, offering a pleasant environment for studying and socialising.
The campus is located in a friendly residential area, with plenty of local shops and pubs right on the doorstep. It's an easy walk into the city and to the train station.
It's perfect for unwinding and excellent for activities: we have some of the best purpose-built sports facilities in the region.
Facilities on campus
On campus we have high-quality accommodation, a drama studio, a study and guidance centre with open learning spaces, a multigym and sports hall, two AstroTurf pitches and facilities for teaching and learning any subject from midwifery to sports studies.
Living on campus
If you choose to live on campus, we offer self-catered accommodation and there are a number of places for eating, drinking and socialising. Our halls of residence are gathered together in a lively student village, right on campus.
The wireless network and internet connections in every room mean that the latest technology and learning resources are easily accessible. There are plenty of open access computers in the library and in a number of computer labs.
Students' Union at the heart of the campus
There's a very active Students' Union and a wide range of clubs and societies. The SU building has been recently refurbished and has a shop, cafe, meeting spaces and a large bar.
