Waterside is the future of the University of Northampton. It’s a purpose-built campus designed to adapt to 21st century teaching.
On your doorstep will be something really unique. A Grade II listed engine shed on the south of the campus has been converted into the home of the Students’ Union and its sports, societies and services. The building is a fusion of classic and modern design – as well as a great place to relax with friends.
At the centre of the Waterside Campus is the new Learning Commons building – the beating heart of the new University of Northampton. It blurs the divides by bringing together resources, staff and spaces that would traditionally be separate. Whether you want to catch up with friends and enjoy a coffee, watch a
public lecture or a local musician – or just find a quiet space to work – all of that will be possible in the Learning Commons.
From the moment you walk through the entrance into the immense, light filled foyer for the first time, you are going to know this isn’t your standard university.
