We've got the best of both worlds - a green, parkland campus within walking-distance of one of the UK's most iconic city centres.
Our accessible campus has two main areas: Campus East and Campus West. We also have the historic King's Manor in the centre of York.
We offer outstanding study facilities and welcoming social spaces, so you'll have everything you need to make the most of your university experience.
2nd safest city
in the UK according to industry body, Get Licensed in their 2023 review.
200 acres of scenic parkland
on our green, landscaped campus
20,000+ students from 150+ countries
all part of our diverse, global community
2 lakes and a bird sanctuary
A wide range of wildlife and waterfowl
Being at a campus based university is great as everything is easily accessible and it feels like a tight-knit community. I love the integration of nature with the campus as it’s centred around the lake. It’s always great to watch the ducks, bunnies and wildlife as you stroll between lectures.
