The Campus

The Campus

Our state-of-the-art, purpose-built campus opened in September 2016.

As a CU Scarborough student you will have access to all the facilities you will need to support your studies and student life, all located in a modern, open plan campus. We are located in the new £50m sport and education campus, which also features the Scarborough Sports Village and Flamingo Land Football Stadium - home of Scarborough Athletic Football Club.

We are continuously expanding our courses, which means our building is ever-changing. September 2018 saw the first cohort of Adult Nursing students begin their degree in our new clinical-skills lab and in September 2019 we opened a brand new drama studio to accommodate our Acting students.

3. 131 tonnes of concrete was used in the pile foundations, that's the equivalent weight of 18 fully grown elephants.

4. 860 metres of under floor heating pipework went into the campus build, enough to span the height of the world's tallest building.
