The Campus

In September 2016, Sir Gary Verity opened our state-of-the-art £14m campus.

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 new purpose-built 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 will house our very first Acting students in a brand new drama studio. 

We have gone from housing just 17 students in 2015, to over 600 students in 2019 and we are not stopping there.

Campus Facts

1. 22,016 meters of data cabling was used in the CU Scarborough campus. That's enough to travel the height of the Eiffel Tower a whopping 68 times!

2. The amount of copper pipework used for the heating and water systems is equivalent to the height of 707 London double decker buses piled on top of each other.

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.
