Campus Facilities

Our exceptional facilities ensure students make the most of their time on campus.

Northumbria University has invested substantially in excellent facilities. This means our students have an outstanding experience during their time here, whether based on one of our two campuses in Newcastle or at out new campus in the City of London.

Our technical facilities support ground-breaking research and ensure students have the practical tools they need to get the most out of their courses. We have state-of-the-art laboratories, prototyping workshops, CAD suites, media labs and more. And all of this is backed up by IT support that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our city centre accommodation is a safe home-from-home for students from the UK and all corners of the world. University-owned and -managed accommodation offers a choice of quieter environments and superb social opportunities for those looking to meet new friends.

Our sports centres offer fantastic opportunities for people at every level of fitness. We have fitness centres, a sprint track, squash courts, a six-lane 25m swimming pool and numerous outdoor pitches. At our flagship Sport Central facility the main arena can cater for up to 3,000 people and is home to the Newcastle Eagles, the most successful team in the British Basketball League.

Our 24/7 University Library achieves some of the highest levels of student satisfaction in the UK and has held the UK Government Customer Service Excellence (CSE) standard since 2010. It provides access to our comprehensive and multidisciplinary print and online Library Collection, as well as places to read, think, write, focus, collaborate, and be inspired.

Northumbria University works with DisabledGo to provide detailed information for all of our buildings and services. The Access Guides cover much more than just automatic doors and ramps; such as information on lighting, colour contrast, signage and background noise. Most importantly, all the details have been checked in person, so you can be sure you’ll get all the facts.
