For the majority of our undergraduate courses, all lectures and seminars will take place at the Peterborough or Stamford campuses, which are open Monday to Friday throughout the year.

Our modern campuses include the following features:

Some courses at our Peterborough campus have practical elements so will use specialist facilities such as gym and sports labs, science laboratories and engineering / construction areas at adjoining Peterborough College. Our Media Production and Journalism courses use specialist facilities at the Media and Journalism Centre in the city centre and our Performing Arts courses use the rehearsal facilities at The Key Theatre or our various partners.
