You’ll find everything you need on campus – whether you’re studying, relaxing or playing.

It has the kind of community atmosphere you won’t find elsewhere. It’s a friendly, welcoming place where great things happen.

Campus is compact, self contained, and located just minutes from the city centre.

Our campus is currently undergoing some exciting changes that will be ready for September 2024.

The Green - our student village

Living at The Green puts you at the heart of student life in Bradford. It's the perfect place to call home during your time at university.

It's arranged as a small village, offering self-catered townhouse or apartment living spaces. As a resident you’ll be a part of a close-knit community, with wardens and ambassadors on hand to help 24/7.

A sustainable campus

With buildings made from hemp, beehives with student beekeepers, and edible gardens, sustainable development is embedded in University life.

We regularly win awards for our environmental initiatives, and our new developments are amongst the most sustainable buildings of their kind.

Space to reflect

Unusually for a city-centre campus, there's plenty of open space here at Bradford - perfect for outdoor study when the weather is nice.

You'll find many formal and informal study spaces across campus, meaning you'll always find somewhere to get things done if you need a change of scenery from the library.

Food and drink

We have many places for you to relax with a coffee or a meal, or to grab something to take away.

This includes the Richmond Eatery, Curb, Starbucks and Coffee Society provided by BaxterStorey. We also have three on campus bars and Central Shakes Diner in Student Central.
