Our Locations

Our campuses are in some of the country’s top locations, including two World Heritage Sites. In fact, we’re the UK’s only university to be set in a national park. Alongside Carlisle and the internationally renowned Lake District, historic Lancaster and buzzing London all bring unique and fantastic opportunities for you to get involved, feel and live the place and be part of a really great atmosphere.


With a vibrant city centre, open surroundings and beautiful heritage sites, Carlisle is a friendly and cultural place to live and study. Sitting on the edge of the Lake District and in close proximity to the cosmopolitan cities of Newcastle and Glasgow, our students love our Carlisle campuses for their small size, close community and friendly atmosphere.
