Everything in one place

Facilities across our three campuses give you the chance to pursue your interests and meet people from across the University. Want to make films? We have professional-grade studios and editing suites. Want to pump iron? Take advantage of our first-class gym. Want to take some time out? See a new blockbuster at our on-campus cinema, Cine10. Want to get involved with environmental initiatives? See our sustainable student guide. Whether you want to collaborate or find a quiet place to focus, we have a huge range of study facilities available.

Whatever your subject, and whatever your passion, from sports to sustainability, we've got the space to make it happen.
