The University campus is well known for being one of the most attractive locations in the region. The Great Ouse river, home to much wildlife, winds through the heart of our campus. Much of our teaching takes place in our restored buildings such as the Franciscan Building, formerly a friary, and, Chandos Road Building, a converted turn-of-the-century milk factory, while students can also enjoy the Hunter Street Library, once military barracks.
Buckingham is in the heart of south-east England, a thriving market town 50 miles from London and 20 miles from Oxford. Easy access by road and rail and proximity to London’s airports support our strong national and international connections.
Living On Campus
Students are required to live in or around Buckingham during term time and, unlike some universities, we are able to guarantee accommodation for all new students for their first four terms of study (providing you have booked and paid for your accommodation within the required timescale). Our safe and beautiful university is small enough for everything to be within walking distance. Study & lecture rooms, the library, computers, social facilities and accommodation are all just a short walk from each other.
Living Off Campus
Buckingham town and the surrounding villages provide a range of accommodation, from cosy cottages to modern flats. Please make sure you organise your accommodation before you arrive at the University as we don’t, unfortunately, have rooms for temporary stays while you look for private accommodation.
Students must live in Buckingham or within a 10 mile radius of Buckingham (including the Borough of Milton Keynes) during term-time. If a student wishes to live outside of this area he / she must first obtain the permission from the Head of Department in which their programme of study is located.
