The Estate

De Grey Court The campus is centrally located by the historic medieval walls of the city and has an impressive mix of historic Victorian and modern buildings, set in award winning gardens. The University has benefited from almost £75 million of strategic investment in new facilities over the past ten years to develop a well resourced city centre campus. This development has enabled us to provide an up to date teaching and learning environment and to host partners such as the Yorkshire Film Archive, The Phoenix Centre, the York Hospitals Trust library and the Centre for Global Education.

The RIBA award winning £15 million De Grey Court, positioned as a gateway to the University from City of York provides an exciting range of teaching facilities, lecture theatres and seminar rooms as well as a graduate centre. It also supports partnership work across York, thereby further contributing to the economic and social development of the city.

Student accommodation is located around the centre of the city within fifteen minutes walk of the campus and facilities include a joint partnership development of the Percy Lane complex. In addition, the University has two sets of playing fields and a boat house within two miles of the campus.
