Student life

Starting university is an exciting step in your life! At the University of Cumbria you'll have plenty to keep you busy outside of your studies with a variety of places to eat and drink, high quality on and off-campus sports facilities and many student clubs and societies to get involved in.

Community Campuses

Our unique and friendly campuses mean that you are part of a whole community whilst you study with us; including staff and academics, and students from across all our courses. You'll be made to feel right at home by current students and support staff and due to the smaller sized campuses will soon get to know your way around campus.

Sports Facilities and UoC Active

We have a variety of sports and exercise facilities at our campuses in Carlisle and Lancaster, as well as partner fitness centres located close to our campuses.

In addition, UoC Active enables you to get involved in sporting clubs and societies regardless of your course. Run by our Students' Union, the clubs allow you to compete nationally and try something new!
