Outstanding facilities

Our commitment to academic excellence is backed by the highest quality facilities and equipment, with over £150 million invested in the last few years to further develop and improve our campuses.

“From all the excellent new study facilities at the University I especially like the Hive - a fantastic big library where you can find all the books that you need. It’s very modern and high-tech.”

From the contemporary science labs and incredible sports facilities at the recently refurbished St John’s and Riverside campuses, to our business school in the modernised Georgian buildings of City Campus, we have a number of specialised facilities that are central to your learning.

Nursing students benefit from our cutting-edge simulation facility and clinical skills suite, enabling them to practice in safe environments and gain the confidence and competence needed before embarking on a career within the health service.

For those seeking careers within the arts, The Garage, a renovated industrial building near St John’s campus, offers inspiring studios, workshop spaces and all the necessary equipment for practising fine art, illustration, and ceramics.

With a reputation for sporting excellence, our sports students have a wide range of specialist amenities to aid their studies. From the 2,000 seat University of Worcester Arena and fitness suites to human performance labs and floodlit astroturf pitches, our sports facilities cater for the needs of both able-bodied and disabled athletes.

“The facilities at the University are really good, especially the clinical rooms where students can attend training simulations to build on skills and experience scenarios before going out into practice, preparing for the real ward experience.”
