The University of Cumbria was formed in 2007 after the merger of three teaching institutions. Since then, the uni has continued to grow into what it is now – a campus uni with five sites.
The uni has two campuses in Carlisle and one in each of the Lake District, London and Lancaster. The Lake District Campus, in Ambleside, is the only UK university campus that’s located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to students who study science and environmental courses.
In Carlisle, one campus sits next to Hadrian’s Wall and one near the train station. The Lancaster campus is a short walk away from Lancaster’s city centre, while in London there are great transport links which allow students to easily get about the capital.
All campuses are unique and friendly, having their own things to do and enjoy. In Carlisle and the Lake District, for example, you’ll have great access to amazing outdoor adventure opportunities, while in London you’ll be in the heart of one of the most exciting cities in the world.
An active student community is present throughout the uni and students can join all sorts of clubs and societies, as well as make the most of services such as the counselling and wellbeing teams.
