With the first cohort of students starting in 2014, University Centre Shrewsbury (UCS) has been one of the latest institutions to enter the higher education sector.
Following substantial investment from both the University of Chester and Shropshire Council, UCS proudly offers fantastic teaching and learning facilities, high-quality, town centre accommodation as well as the beautiful town of Shrewsbury as its backdrop.
Benefitting from great links with the Shrewsbury community and surrounding area, students can find all they need to keep fit and healthy. At Shrewsbury Sports Village you can find a sports hall, grass pitches and a climbing wall. Shrewsbury is also well-known as a ‘Cycling Town’, as chosen by Cycling England, and therefore offers excellent access for cyclists in and around the area.
Through strong links with the University of Chester, UCS also offers award-winning student support and guidance, and dedicated careers development advice.
Where can you find us?
University Centre Shrewsbury can be found in the heart of Shropshire, surrounded by hills, follies and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Shrewsbury town itself is vibrant, exciting and quirky and boasts a mix of independent shops, colourful cocktail bars, comfy pubs and great eateries to try out.
