Campus and facilities
York St John University is an outstanding university, known for
its academic excellence and responsive nature, always putting the
student at the heart of everything it does. Our magnificent campus
is located in the centre of the historic City of York. Our
eleven-acre site on Lord Mayor’s Walk is in a stunning setting
facing the world-famous York Minster across the city walls.
Our award winning campus has undergone
a £100 million transformation over the past 10 years to ensure
students benefit from the right environment in which to study and
live. Originally built around a quadrangle, newer buildings
including De Grey Court and the Fountains Learning Centre which
houses the library, IT facilities and a modern lecture theatre. The
Foss Building houses our sports hall, a physiology laboratory, a
biomechanics lab, a psychology lab, a fitness suite, physiotherapy
labs and general teaching rooms.
Other facilities include a dance
studio, drama studio, music rooms (both practical and technical),
TV and film production facilities, editing suites and dedicated art
and design studios. There is a number of catering outlets and the
Students’ Union has a bar, café, shop and offices on campus.
