Emm Lane Campus

The School of Management and School of Law benefit from a dedicated campus set in 14 acres of beautiful parkland in a leafy suburb of the city - just a short bus ride away from the University's City Centre Campus.

From here, we run a full range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral degrees as well as customised Executive Education and corporate programmes.

We have our own dedicated teaching and learning facilities, library, careers service and other specialist support services to ensure our students get the most out of their time here. There's also a multi-faith room on-site, showers, and all our facilities are accessible for those with disabilities.

Following a multi-million pound redevelopment in 2010, the campus brings together Victorian architecture with an award-winning sustainable building featuring a Harvard-style lecture theatre and atrium space for eating, drinking, socialising and working.

Emm Lane Building

Emm Lane was built as the Congregationalist Airedale College in 1874-1877, becoming the United Independent College in 1888.

It was partly financed by industrialist and philanthropist Sir Titus Salt, who built the nearby World Heritage Site of Saltaire village.

The neo-Gothic building was designed by the architects responsible for the Italianate Bradford City Hall, the city's Wool Exchange and Salt's Mill.

It is now used as teaching space, offices, common rooms, and meeting and reception rooms.

It is also home to the Management and Law Learning Resource Centre.

Seasons Restaurant and Atrium

Seasons Restaurant and Atrium.

Our central two-story Atrium unites the Emm Lane and Sir Titus Salt buildings and provides a fantastic indoor space for eating, socialising and working.

It is home to Seasons Restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch, cakes and coffee.

Sir Titus Salt building

Sir Titus Salt building.

The Sir Titus Salt building, opened in July 2010 by Sir Ken Morrison, includes a Harvard-style MBA suite, social and learning spaces, a restaurant and floating staircase.

It unites the campus through a two-story Atrium. The design brings together the Victorian buildings with modern, cutting-edge design.

Architects Farrell & Clark overcame the challenges of the Faculty's 14 acres of conservation woodland and listed buildings to achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' environmental rating.

Environmental features include a biomass boiler, energy efficient lighting, solar panels, and electric car charging facilities. 

The building is part of the University of Bradford's Ecoversity initiative to minimise the university's impact on the environment. 


The Green banner

There is no accommodation available on the Emm Lane campus, but The Green at the City Campus puts students right at the heart of the University’s academic studies, student facilities, support services and social activities. 

It is a fantastic place to live and is one of the most sustainable developments of its kind in the world, making the most of natural resources like solar power and rainwater, and costing very little to heat and light.
