City Campus tour

Our City Campus is really walkable, with most buildings just a couple of minutes apart. Here's a look at some of the main City Campus landmarks, and what goes on inside.

Our buildings

Right at the heart of our city campus, the Owen building houses loads of subject areas and facilities, from bioscience labs to photography studios and state-of-the-art kitchens. Student services are based here too, offering advice on things like finance, careers and wellbeing.

Several students sat around a table in discussion inside the Hertha Ayrton building at City Campus.

Hertha Ayrton

Just next door is the Hertha Ayrton STEM Centre. Here you'll find our engineering labs, simulators, and workshops for architecture students. It's also a really good spot to meet friends, grab a coffee between lectures or just chill out on the cushions.

Heading back through Owen Building you'll find the Adsetts Library building with five floors of books, meeting rooms and study areas that you can use 24 hours a day, every day of the year. You can also borrow laptops, and there's a cafe on site, so you've got everything you need for an all-nighter.

Just down the road is the amazing Head Post Office building, which is home to our art and design students. There's a tonne of things going on in there, from fashion design on the top floor to illustration and even metalwork. There's also a cafe and gallery space that hosts student exhibitions and fashion shows.

Charles Street is where you'll be if you're studying teaching and education. Its deli makes it a favorite spot for a lot of students.

There's a good number of charity and vintage shops too, and the Peace Gardens square and indoor Winter Garden are really good places to take some time out. Getting about is really convenient too – the train station and main bus station are next to campus, and regular buses run down Arundel Gate, right past many of our buildings. If you need to get over to our Collegiate Campus, that's just a 10 minute ride or a 20 minute walk away.
