University Of Cumbria Fusehill Campus

With a bustling city centre, beautiful surroundings and a wealth of history, Carlisle is a fantastic place to live and study. It is also in close proximity to the cosmopolitan cities of Newcastle and Glasgow due to its location on the West Coast mainline and motorway. Our students love it for its culture, close community and friendly atmosphere.

Life on campus

The second largest of our campuses, Fusehill Street is located close to the city centre of Carlisle. On-site you’ll find a library containing a large collection of Health, Education, Law and Social Science resources. In addition, our Learning Gateway building is a flexible and bright study area that allows you to study in a silent zone, book rooms for collaborative sessions with peers and lecturers or just have your lunch!

On campus you’ll also find Skiddaw Dining Room and Calva Bar/Beer Garden – both serve up hot food and snacks daily. In between studies you can make use of our sports hall and gym, or find some quiet time in the chapel building which is open to students and staff of all faiths.

Home to a castle which has dominated for nine centuries as well as an impressive cathedral, Carlisle is rich in both culture and heritage. The city hosts an array of high street shops and independent boutiques; Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh are also easily reachable on the West Coast Main Line and the M6.


In recent years, Carlisle has developed an eclectic music scene and an abundance of restaurants and bars to eat and drink at. The city is also home to several theatres, a cinema, bowling alley and a variety of other venues where you can enjoy some evening entertainment with friends.
Our Brampton Road campus is a short walk from the city centre or a five minute drive, perfect for spontaneous trips into town.
