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.
