You’ll find everything you need on City 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.
City Campus is compact, self contained, and located just minutes from the city centre.
Student Central is the home of the University of Bradford Union of Students (UBU) and a range of student support services.
You'll also find:
- RamAir, our own student-run radio station
- Bradford Student Cinema
- A fully stocked shop
- Bars and entertainment venues
- Central Shakes Diner
- MyBradford Student Support Services
- Social spaces
We have fantastic sports facilities on campus including Unique Fitness, which offers a swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, a spin room, and a climbing wall. As well as a range of fitness classes, pitches and courts and a multi-use sports hall.
The Sports Park, five minutes walk from campus, has 3G pitches, tennis courts, a physio room and a new conditioning suite geared towards team sport training. Our Students' Union has over 30 sports clubs to choose from.
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.
Nightlife on campus
The University of Bradford on-campus bars have a variety of events for everyone including silent discos, karaoke and quizzes, as well as our famous Diversion Wednesday and FOMO Friday weekly events.
