Campus overview

Our campus is located in the city centre, in the cultural heart of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter (see location map). The campus is currently undergoing a transformative redevelopment programme, that will see the majority of students currently studying on the Jordanstown site move to Belfast in 2019. The first phase of the development has been completed and the first new building is now open. The enhanced Belfast campus will provide a modern, innovative, inspiring environment for teaching, learning and research for all of our students and staff. Access to the campus for students is controlled via a swipe access control system operating via the student card.  Students should note access can not be granted without a valid ID card. Bus and rail stations servicing all main city and country routes are within easy walking distance of the campus. There are a limited number of parking spaces on site and a number of public car parks in the surrounding area.
