University of Hull on an Open Day

Life in Hull

The University of Hull is a friendly, beautifully landscaped single-site campus, located in a vibrant, student-orientated area only two miles from the city centre. Voted one of the best places to live in the UK in the Sunday Times 2017, Hull’s sense of community spirit means you’ll easily feel at home.

Campus life

There's a real sense of community and heritage at the University of Hull, which is the 14th oldest university in England.

At the heart of the University’s £28million health campus sits the award winning Allam Medical Building, home to Hull York Medical School in Hull. Officially opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2017, the building is an aspirational teaching and learning environment where you will rub shoulders with other healthcare professionals in training, including nursing, physician associate and midwifery students.

The University has also had a huge investment in the Brynmor Jones Library, the Middleton Hall – hosting theatre productions, conferences and cinema screenings – and brand new £16million sports facilities. It’s also home to the award-winning on-campus nightclub, Asylum.

HULL YORK MEDICAL SCHOOL Stories

I visited both universities (Hull and York) on their Open Days. I was really impressed with the Hull campus, especially the Brynmor Jones Library. I do a lot of my study there, and the state-of-the-art and beautiful library definitely won me over. The city centre has all the brands that you need, with spots to visit, like the museums and the aquarium The Deep. This is my favourite place in the city, and I’d definitely recommend going in the afternoon and then staying to see the sun set on the River Humber.

Hull

City life

Close to campus, the vibrant Newland Avenue and Princes Avenue residential areas are popular with students and offers an eclectic selection of bars, coffee shops, eateries and boutiques.

Hull’s lively city centre also offers a broad range of shops, restaurants, cafés, bars, theatres and clubs, as well as the picturesque marina.

Hull was the UK City of Culture for 2017 and is a true destination city. Its annual Freedom Festival is a premier art, music and entertainment event, while trendy Humber Street in the city’s Old Town is a creative and cultural hub, filled with galleries, live music venues, markets, bars and eateries.

Hull is only a short train journey to bigger cities: Leeds (1 hour), Manchester (2 hours) and London (2 hours 40mins), and an hour from the stunning coastline and the beautiful seaside town of Scarborough.
