Student Life

We hope that you’ll have a great experience at York St John and we want you to make the most out of your time with us, whether that’s at work, rest or play! York is regularly voted one of the best places to live in the UK and for students it’s a wonderful place to live and learn.

Here you can find out information about the facilities, activities, the city and the campus. Your University gives details about the University, including our facilities, accommodation, study spaces across Campus and events to get involved in with the Students’ Union. The City of York is a brilliant place to live and study, we’re sure you’ll love studying and living here, there are loads of things to see and do in this historic city and we’ve got some great suggestions for you to discover! Our students are our top priority, through our Learning and Teaching we pride ourselves in creating a small, friendly community within each School where you will be fully supported throughout your time studying with us. Sports and Recreation is a great way of getting active, meeting new friends and trying out new things whilst you are at university. With brand new sporting facilities up at Haxby Road and a huge selection of clubs to join you’re sure to find a sport that’s for you.
