List of campus unis in the UK

Decided a campus university is the one for you? Here's a list of UK campus universities.

First of all, what is a campus university? Strictly speaking, it means that all (or most) of the university-owned buildings and spaces, such as lecture theatres, student bars and halls of residence, are situated in one place.

The alternative to a campus university is a city-based one, where the uni buildings are scattered throughout the city. This article on our sister site The Student Room goes into detail about the differences between city and campus universities.
