Facilities

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 24/7 Library was rated joint 3rd in the country, alongside Cambridge University, in the Times Higher Education 2014 Student Experience Survey. It provides access to more than 570,000 books, 400,000 e-books and 50,000 print and electronic journals.

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 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 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.
