Our 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.

The University Library achieves some of the highest levels of student satisfaction in the UK and has held the Cabinet Office accreditation for Customer Service Excellence since 2010. City Campus Library and the University Library Digital Commons are open 24/7 during term-time, and the other libraries also operate generous opening hours, which can vary throughout the year to meet demand for space and support.

The Libraries offer learning spaces to meet a variety of needs, from silent or quiet study through to social and collaborative learning. The Library provides an extensive collection of scholarly resources including books, ebooks, print and ejournals, as well as  databases, collections of early historical books and primary digital archives.
