About University of York

Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York opened in 1963 with just 230 students. Since then we have become one of the world's leading universities, carving out a reputation as an academic powerhouse where a clear focus on excellence has secured national and international recognition alongside longer established institutions. 

Campus information

The University is in the middle of an unprecedented period of expansion and renewal.

Since 2000, we have invested in 20 new buildings on the original Heslington West campus and have completed the first and second phases of a £750m campus expansion at Heslington East. Our investment in new colleges, teaching and learning space, laboratories, research facilities and a new sport village mean it has never been a better time to join our student body or research groups at York.

Located within walking distance of York city centre, our safe and attractive Heslington campus is home to our eight colleges and most of our departments. We also have several departments located in the city centre at the historic King's Manor.


With over 3,700 rooms for undergraduate students, we can offer a range of options to suit you and your budget, from economy rooms in older blocks to brand new deluxe accommodation with spacious shared kitchens featuring sofas and LCD televisions. All of our accommodation is on or very close to campus, so you will never be far from lectures, the library, catering outlets and student bars.
