The University of York has established an international reputation for academic excellence and we pride ourselves on the achievements of our staff and students. York is one of the most successful research universities in the UK and was placed in the top ten UK universities by the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, the University of York is proud to create an environment that attracts the best staff and students from all over the world. What we gain from our diverse communities is immeasurable. We want all our staff and students to feel they are an integral part of the York community, and together we will create an inclusive culture where everyone can contribute to university life, knowledge and growth.
Underpinning our excellent reputation is a friendly and welcoming campus, set in a beautiful landscaped park.
The campus has recently grown with the new multimillion-pound Heslington East development. Although expanding, the University maintains a valued sense of community and inclusivity through a collegiate system.
The self-contained campus offers a range of facilities including the sports centre, catering outlets, shops, a nursery, a doctor’s surgery and banks.
Frequent bus services transport staff and students around campus and the short distance into York city centre.
