The University of Hull opened its doors 90 years ago and has since become one of Britain’s established teaching universities, providing a high-quality education and increasingly producing world-class research, while putting students at the heart of everything. The University of Hull’s campus is a real hidden treasure, and provides one of the finest study environments in the UK.
The University of Hull is currently investing more than £200 million to transform its beautiful red brick campus into a 21st-century learning environment. Part of this includes the brand new £28-million health campus, which will incorporate cutting edge facilities including a mock hospital ward, operating theatre and intensive care unit. In addition to the excellent teaching facilities, there’s plenty of space to unwind and enjoy yourself – from cafés, restaurants, bars, gardens and plazas, to the award-winning on-campus nightclub, Asylum.
Close to campus, there’s a vibrant University Quarter where the leafy Avenues residential area borders an eclectic selection of bars, coffee shops, eateries and boutiques. Popular with the student community, it’s a quirky, bohemian part of town, full of interesting shops and people.
Hull’s lively city centre offers a broad range of shops, restaurants, cafés, bars, theatres and attractions, as well as the picturesque marina, home to the retro Fruit Market. Here, you will discover a creative and cultural hub including art galleries, live music venues, markets and fine dining establishments. The annual Freedom Festival is fast becoming a phenomenon, with its reputation as a premier art, music and entertainment event growing locally and nationally. No wonder Hull has been named the 2017 UK City of Culture and one of the top ten cities to visit in the world by Rough Guides.
