A walk through our Fusehill Street campus
Real world teaching environments
History meets innovation at Fusehill Street. Our Grade II listed Skiddaw Building offers modern facilities with a stunning exterior full of character.
The Learning Gateway is a hub of activity at our Fusehill Street Campus. Spanning three open-plan floors, this space is used for solo study, collaborative sessions, peer or tutor support, and essay writing.
The popular space houses a 150 seat lecture theatre, a series of seminar rooms, and extensive, open and flexible desk areas.
The gateway provides modern spaces with access to free wi-fi, hot desking, teleconference facilities, and laptop hire.
Situated on the ground floor of Skiddaw Building, this is the perfect social area for catching up with friends over a coffee and a cake. We offer a wide selection of hot food, including breakfast, paninis, jacket potatoes, a deli bar, as well as a selection of pastries and home-made cakes.
Additionally, there are grab and go options available. You may also purchase hot and cold drinks at our on-campus Starbucks coffee shop.Find out more

OUR STUDENTS LOVE IT HERE TOO
I was made to feel that I can achieve, I can move mountains (if needed!). The tutors discovered the part of me that I was not aware was there and gradually, with gentle guidance, prompted me to achieve.
