Information

About The University of Huddersfield

The University of Huddersfield's main campus is the Queensgate Campus, based in Huddersfield town centre. There are two other campuses in Barnsley and Oldham, both of which opened in 2005 to make higher education more readily available to people in both towns and the surrounding area. They offer a range of full and part-time courses, though courses at the Oldham campus are run by Oldham College but validated by the University of Huddersfield.
 

Background and History

The University of Huddersfield acquired university status in 1992, having been Huddersfield Polytechnic since 1970. However, its roots stretch back to 1841 with the formation of the Young Men's Mental Improvement Society.

Road: The University of Huddersfield is easily linked to the M1 and M62, but be warned that parking on campus is limited. However, there are a number of nearby car parks in the town centre.

Disabled access: Most buildings and facilities are wheelchair friendly, and accommodation designed for people with disabilities is available. Further information can be found by emailing [email protected]
