Located on Campus West close to the Sports Centre, James is built around landscaped quadrants with lakeside views. We have a large dining hall and we're home to the Students’ Union cocktail bar, The Lounge.

Priding ourselves on our give-it-a-go ethos, we encourage everyone to get involved with a diverse range of activities. All of our first year accommodation is catered and mealtimes often become social events. We have a strong sporting tradition and we'll work hard to ensure that you'll feel welcome to take part, make new friends and challenge yourself.

One of our students shared their experiences with us. Read their blog here.
