Burnley Campus

Our Burnley Campus is home to a diverse community of students from around the world studying on our growing range of undergraduate, postgraduate taught, postgraduate research and degree apprenticeship courses.

The perfect place to study

Our Burnley Campus features bright, spacious buildings and cutting-edge facilities. We’re situated across three sites:

Victoria Mill, an iconic Grade II listed building and Sandygate Mill, which are both located in the historic Weavers' Triangle area; and Princess Way, which is shared with Burnley College.

It is a compact, friendly campus where you'll benefit from small class sizes and a high level of support - you'll really get to know your tutors and the other students on your course.

Here when you need advice or support

We're always available on campus whenever you need advice or support. Our Student Services Team are there to help you with every aspect of University life, including accommodation, financial matters, council tax exemption forms and letter requests, personal wellbeing and much more. We also have a Course Administration Service (CAS) Hub on site to assist you with anything related to your course.

Sandygate Hall

In 2020, Sandygate Hall opened offering high-quality student accommodation for students studying at UCLan Burnley. Sandygate has 136 en-suite bedrooms, within 29 flats and student hub social areas, which feature flexible working space with comfortable seating and a flat screen TV.

Relaxing spaces

As well as our impressive classrooms, laboratories and computer suites, the Library offers a relaxing space with comfortable study areas and access to thousands of books and online resources. Depending on which course you choose, you’ll also get to make use of our state-of-the-art manufacturing suite, recording studio and moot courtroom.
