Facilities at University of Hertfordshire

Academic Facilities

The two campuses both have state-of-the-art Learning Resource Centres, which are open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week during term time, while the online learning resource StudyNet' allows students to access additional learning materials. In addition, laboratory and teaching facilities have been the benefactors of significant investment since 2010, while the DeHavilland campus featuring top-of-the-range research equipment.

Other on-site Amenities

In addition to a thriving bar and a network of restaurants and cafes, in 2009, the University opened The Forum', which features three bars, a restaurant, numerous cafes, and an on-site shop for all the catering needs for students on campus. There are cash points and laundry facilities available across both sites, in addition to a nursery and car park.

Students are required to register with a local GP. There is a dedicated Pharmacy and medical centre on-site to provide students with medical support, while the Key Centre, a centre for all faiths and none, is also the site for the university's confidential and professional counselling service.  

What's on in the Area

Hatfield is a sleepy town, with only the Hatfield Odeon really meriting a visit. Nearby Welwyn, which is just ten minutes away via the campus bus, or London, which is under half an hour away by train, are the first ports of call for students in search of clubs, music or the arts. There is, however, a thriving independent music scene in nearby St Albans.  

Moving On

The University Careers Service, Graduate Futures, provides support to students throughout their degrees and beyond, supporting them with CV-writing and interview technique. As the majority of students at Hertfordshire undertake a work placement, they are well-prepared for the world of work.
