The Jordanstown campus is situated seven miles north of Belfast. The grounds lie at the foot of the South Antrim hills, and the land fronting the main entrance slopes down to the shore of Belfast Lough.
The campus has a strong profile in engineering, social sciences, business, communication and academic disciplines relating to the science and coaching of sport.
The Students' Union is a popular meeting place and has a cafeteria and shop both offering excellent value for money. There is also a Games Room with pool tables and a range of video games, as well as social space where students can eat a packed lunch or simply chill out. The Sports Union Office and Volunteer Centre offer information on how to join the many student clubs and societies based on campus, and the Students' Union officers and staff are on hand to provide advice on academic, financial and welfare matters. For those wishing to live on campus, there are 700 residential student places available on-site.

Belfast’s popularity as a destination for short breaks from other parts of the UK and Ireland has grown enormously in recent years thanks to excellent leisure and tourist facilities and cheap and regular travel links. Belfast City Airport is just across the lough and Belfast International Airport is 15 miles away. Both have excellent connecting transport links to the city. As Belfast is a sea port both it and nearby Larne have traditional ferry and high speed boat services to Scotland and England.
