Study in a vibrant city centre
Our campuses are inspiring places to study and lively places to live.
As one of the largest universities in the east of England, you can explore your options. Pick one of our city-centre campuses at Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough.
Take a look around
Each campus has a different feel. Cambridge is steeped in history, culture and stunning architecture. Peterborough is fast establishing itself as a leading global authority on environmental and sustainability issues. England's newest city, Chelmsford, was recently voted one of the top ten places to live in the UK. All three cities are within easy reach of London, so a day trip to the hustle and bustle of the capital is only a train ride away.
