On-campus sports facilities include a fully equipped sports hall, gym, swimming pool, squash and tennis courts, sprint track, floodlit 3G multi-use pitch and floodlit astroturf pitch.

Most of our student accommodation is also on or near campus. The campus also boasts an abundance of green space, and beautifully kept gardens, which provide you with an exciting environment in which to live and study.
