Campus

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

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 Union shop
  • Bars and entertainment venues
  • Social spaces

Sport facilities

We have fantastic sports facilities on campus including Unique Fitness and Lifestyle, which offers a swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, regular classes and therapy sessions, and a multi-use sports hall.

The newly refurbished University of Bradford Sports Park is five minutes from campus, and has 3G pitches, tennis courts, a physio room and a new conditioning suite geared towards team sport training.

The Green - our student village

Our award-winning student village, The Green, puts you at the heart of student life in Bradford, and is 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. Our campus is ranked the 4th greenest in the world.

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.

Food and drink on campus is provided by BaxterStorey, and includes the Atrium Restaurant, Starbucks, Grumpy Mule and Costa Cofee outlets, and Indian-style burritos, wraps and curries from Wrap Chic.

We run an Arts on Campus programme which offers something for everyone, with regular film screenings, exhibitions, talks and events.
