University of Bradford Campus
We’ve invested £120 million in our bustling City Campus and beautiful Emm Lane Campus to make sure you get the most out of your time here – whether you’re studying, working, relaxing or playing.
- Food and drink – you can choose from a wide range of places to eat and drink.
- Arts on Campus – the campus boasts its own theatre, art gallery and music centre.
- Fitness and sport – our Unique: Fitness & Lifestyle sports centre boasts a range of top facilities including a gym, swimming pool and climbing wall.
- Award-winning accommodation – The Green is based on the City Campus, putting students right at the heart of the University’s academic studies, student facilities, support services and social activities.
- Study areas – many of the social spaces on campus also double as study areas, in addition to the dedicated study areas available to all students.
- Relaxation areas – there’s an abundance of informal meeting places where you can sit with friends over a coffee and catch up on some study notes or talk through your lectures, including lots of green space.
- Sustainable campus – our new developments are among the most environmentally-friendly buildings in the world.
In 2005, a £84 million redevelopment of the campus was announced, and a project to create the world’s first ‘Ecoversity’ was formed. The university aimed to reduce its environmental footprint by reducing waste and using sustainable materials. As part of this, Bradford became a Fairtrade University in December 2006.
As of 2008, several of the redevelopment projects have been completed. The Richmond Building has been partially re-clad with extra insulation and a new atrium; designed by local Saltaire-based architects Rance Booth & Smith; opened in December 2006, the roof of which uses ETFE – the same material used in the Eden Project. The university’s cancer therapeutics research centre was moved from a separate site on All Saint’s Road onto the main campus, into a new building which also provides conference facilities; the buildings on the old site were demolished in February 2008.
