This is your campus. It's where you will study, socialise and learn.

This page is your introduction to life on campus. Here you can find out about our response to the pandemic. You can discover your Students' Union and study places on campus. You will also find a link to our campus map, so you can find your way around when you arrive. 

Staying safe on campus 

We are putting your health and your learning first. Our blended learning approach means you will be studying online and on campus. We are making changes to how our campus works so you get the most out of your university experience and feel safe while studying. Find out about the changes we are making using the link below. 

Making our campus safe

Your Students' Union

When you join us you will automatically become a member of the Students' Union (SU). We are your representative body, here to make sure your voice is heard and your opinions are listened to by the university. 

We are also home to all of York St John's sports clubs and societies, with over 60 activities to get involved in. We provide events and entertainment throughout the year including quizzes, film nights, live music and karaoke. Events may be impacted by social distancing measures currently, but we will still have a calendar of events so you can socialise safely.


Study spaces on campus

Discover your perfect study space. We have outlined just some of the study spaces we have available on campus. We know you will find the spot to motivate and inspire your work, whether it's a creative project, or a written assignment.

Finding your way around 

Our friendly staff members will be on campus to help you find your way around. You can also visit our digital campus map to help you find your way around and understand the room naming system. It can also show you places to get food in the local area, places to park and where key services are located. You'll know your way around in no time, but until then, our map can help you.
