Our Campus

For learning. For socialising. For accessing top facilities to give you the very best experience.

A beautiful place to learn and grow

You can't deny our campus is just beautiful, with plenty of green spaces and a blend of old and modern architecture. There are lots of social areas to meet friends and unwind. With a strong sense of community, it won't take long to settle in.

Our campus is perfectly situated less than two minutes’ walk from the hustle and bustle of the main city centre shopping area. You never have to walk far to a lecture or seminar and there's always somewhere close-by you can grab a coffee or a quick bite to eat. 

Our School of Computing and Newcastle Business School are based at Newcastle Helix. They're still just 15 minutes' walk from the centre of campus. 

Most of our student accommodation is within a 20 minute walk from the centre of campus.

Newcastle is ranked among the world's best for sustainable development. We declared a Climate Emergency as a university. This means that we have pledged to reduce our own net carbon emissions to zero by 2030.

We were only the second university in the UK to make this declaration and now that our partners in the City Council and the NHS Trust have also declared, we believe that Newcastle as a city is leading the way in its efforts towards a more sustainable future.

Our facilities

We've achieved five QS Stars for our facilities from QS Quacquarelli Symonds, meaning you'll have access to a whole range of top facilities that not only support you and help you get the best out of your studies but give you an outstanding experience.

Our high-specification, specialist facilities include laboratories, studios, museums, galleries, farms, and even a sea-going vessel. Find out more on our Undergraduate and Postgraduate course pages.
