Welcome to Northumbria

About Us
Northumbria University, in Newcastle upon Tyne, is an expanding multicultural learning community, with excellent links with further and higher education, industry and commerce throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. Renowned for the excellence of its teaching, as well as for preparing students for the world of work, Northumbria also provides research opportunities for professional reflective practice.

Situated in the north-east of England, Northumbria has two separate campuses. The largest, City Campus, is situated in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. Coach Lane Campus is situated in a leafy suburb of the city, 3 miles from City Campus and linked by the University's free bus service.

Corporate Responsibility
Northumbria University is committed to being an ethical and sustainable organisation.  From developing our infrastructure in an environmentally sustainable way to considering the effect of our activities on the local community, corporate responsibility is at the heart of everything we do. 

We have developed a corporate responsibility statement (PDF) to demonstrate to our stakeholders what is meant by corporate responsibility and our commitments to continually improve our performance across all areas of the organisation.  The statement sets a standard for how the University carries out its business and illustrates how it proposes to operate to uphold and improve upon these standards in the future.

In order to further build upon our objectives and successes, we are currently developing a comprehensive corporate responsibility strategy in parallel with Northumbria University's Corporate Strategy 2013 - 2018.
