Waterside Campus

Waterside is our purpose-built campus, designed to provide you with the learning experience and opportunities you expect from a modern university.

We know our staff and students want the very best, and that’s what Waterside will provide. It is the embodiment of our mission to transform lives and inspire change.

We’ve designed Waterside to put you first – it is flexible to the changing needs of our students but also makes the most of our fantastic staff. A University that teaches in a way that mirrors the skills you will need when you graduate, a place that provides everything you will need to live and learn, and that will provide a home-from-home as you enjoy one of the best and most fulfilling experiences of your life.

Our new campus opens its doors in September 2018 and while Waterside will be home to most of our teaching, we’ll also be making use of the excellent facilities around the town. We’ll also be retaining some off-campus accommodation options to make sure we have a great range of rooms to suit everyone.

Find out more about our new campus at Hello Waterside or come and visit the new campus on an Open Day.

Innovation Centre

The Innovation Centre is home to some of our performance courses. Located in the centre of town, this conservatoire teaching environment has six purpose-built specialist studios for teaching, rehearsals and acting workshops.

The Innovation Centre is also home to the University’s Competence Test Centre, which provides Part Two of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Test of Competence for overseas nurses and midwives who are seeking registration with the NMC to be able to practice in the UK. The Competence Test Centre has six designated bays where a range of scenarios and skills are tested. For more information, please see the Test of Competence web pages.

As well as some of our performance courses and Competence Test Centre, the Innovation Centre houses several small business start-ups and has rentable office space and exhibition space.

The Innovation Centre is directly opposite the Northampton Train Station within the Waterside Enterprise Zone.
