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.
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.
