The University of Huddersfield is an award-winning University. You’ll benefit from inspirational teaching and learning and top class facilities and resources. We’ve invested over £160 million in some exciting new buildings to make our campus a great place to be.
Our campus is located right in the heart of a vibrant town, surrounded by beautiful countryside. As it’s part of Yorkshire, it’s also one of the friendliest places on earth! It’s in a great central location in the UK with Manchester and Leeds just a quick train ride away and it’s also well connected to the M62 and M1.
Huddersfield is a cosmopolitan, bustling and energetic place with a great choice of bars, restaurants, sporting facilities and shopping. Unlike some large cities, Huddersfield offers a relatively low cost of living, giving you more for your money.
