Campus Facilities

Our exceptional facilities ensure students make the most of their time on campus.

Northumbria University’s campuses provide exceptional facilities to create an environment where you can shape your future. Our technical facilities support ground-breaking research and ensure students have the practical tools they need to get the most out of their courses. We have state-of-the-art laboratories, prototyping workshops, CAD suites, media labs and more. And all of this is backed up by IT support that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our city centre accommodation is a safe home-from-home for students from the UK and all corners of the world. University-owned and -managed accommodation offers a choice of quieter environments and superb social opportunities for those looking to meet new friends.

Our sports centres offer fantastic opportunities for people at every level of fitness. We have fitness centres, a sprint track, squash courts, a six-lane 25m swimming pool and numerous outdoor pitches. At our flagship Sport Central facility the main arena can cater for up to 3,000 people and is home to the Newcastle Eagles, the most successful team in the British Basketball League.

The University Library achieves some of the highest levels of student satisfaction in the UK and has held the Cabinet Office accreditation for Customer Service Excellence since 2010. City Campus Library and the University Library Digital Commons are open 24/7 during term-time, and the other libraries also operate generous opening hours, which can vary throughout the year to meet demand for space and support. The Libraries offer learning spaces to meet a variety of needs, from silent or quiet study through to social and collaborative learning. The Library provides an extensive collection of scholarly resources including books, ebooks, print and ejournals, as well as  databases, collections of early historical books and primary digital archives.
