Live at the heart of where it all happens. The Newton Park Campus, houses currently 306 students in single, shared and en-suite study bedrooms. Once the new development is completed, we will have over 800 bed spaces on campus and students will get to benefit from our great facilities, beautiful surroundings and busy social life. Living on campus means it is all within easy reach.

Location

Living in Newton Park Campus, you're surrounded by beautiful countryside. You'll find lots of green areas that are perfect for sitting with friends or studying in the sun. Or if you're in search of inspiration, look out across Newton Park Lake or stroll round its banks to the stunning lakeside 'temple' building.

Food, Drink and Shops on Campus

Newton Park has several places to get hot and cold food, coffee, drinks and groceries. These include The Refectory, and within this The Deli, which offer hot lunches, light meals, hot and cold drinks, sweet and savoury snacks. 

You can get coffee and pastries at East Wing Coffee found in the Main House, and hot drinks with paninis and light snacks at the Commons Cafe in The Commons Building. 

The Students Union (SU) has a fully licenced bar and also serves hot meals with daily deals for students. The SU also has a shop where you can buy essential groceries along with University merchandise such as hoodies and t-shirts.
