Here at Huddersfield, the University of the Year, you can get involved in as much or as little as you want. Our campus means you’re never far away from anything that takes place, from your lectures to events, the Students’ Union to the town centre.
You can keep up to date with everything that goes on across campus by following the University on social media. The University has main accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ but you’ll also find that our academic schools and support services also have dedicated accounts if you have specific questions about your course, financial support or admissions information.
The campus offers you state-of-the-art facilities and we’re constantly investing in our estate to ensure you have the best possible learning opportunities when you join us. In January 2014, we opened the doors to Student Central, our new learning and leisure centre. The building provides a unique hub for staff and students, bringing together easy access to the library, all the student support services under one roof, the Students' Union, fantastic sports facilities and some great places to eat.

Enterprise and innovation
Employability is really important at Huddersfield. We’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading universities when it comes to integrating paid work placements into our courses. We also place a huge emphasis on encouraging our students who would like to set up their own businesses. In 2013 we were awarded two Queen's Awards for Enterprise and in 2012 we were awarded the prestigious Times Higher Education Award for Entrepreneurial University of the Year. Our Enterprise Team which is now based in the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre is here to support our students with their ideas, big or small.
All this combines to ensure that the student experience at Huddersfield is one you’ll never forget and we look forward to welcoming you on campus.
