Campus life

Our main campus is situated in the heart of the stunning city of York, with our dedicated sports park just 1 mile away.

York St John Quad

Studying at York St John means being right in the centre of town. Our campus is a place where modern buildings meet Victorian architecture, where you can study in state-of-the-art specialist learning spaces, and where you can unwind in award-winning gardens.

Whether you are an early bird or a night owl, our Learning Centre is open 24 hours a day so you can learn on your terms. It is home to a range of digital resources, Macs and PCs and specially selected books to help you with your studies.

Are you a frappé or a pumpkin spice latte kind of person? Or perhaps you prefer a nice cup of tea? Either way, we've got you covered with a Costa and Starbucks onsite. 

When it comes to entertainment, meet your friends at our Students' Union, take part in campus events, and then head into town. With a campus as close to the city as ours, there is always something to do.
