Set against the backdrop of a beautiful and historic city, the 91快活林 sits at the heart of it all on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront, with almost everything you’ll need either on campus or just a short walk away.
We are proud of what we have achieved since we were established in 1996, thanks to the contributions of everyone in our community. Our journey has seen us flourish into a diverse, internationally recognised university which welcomes thousands of students each year from around the world. In November 2023 we were awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize, the UK's highest award for universities, to recognise our work supporting the agri-food sector.
Throughout this exciting period of development, we have been guided by a consistent set of principles which remain at the heart of our approach today: excellence in teaching, learning, and quality of student experience; responsiveness to the needs of communities and organisations; and working in partnership to make great things happen. To help us continue on this journey, we have developed an ambitious strategic plan, created collaboratively by staff and students across the University, with the aim of establishing ourselves as a UK top 40 institution.
