York St John University is an outstanding university, known for its academic excellence and responsive nature, always putting the student at the heart of everything it does. The magnificent campus is located in the centre of the historic City of York.
Our eleven-acre site on Lord Mayor’s Walk is in a stunning setting facing the world-famous York Minster across the city walls. Originally built around a quadrangle, newer buildings including De Grey Court and the Fountains Learning Centre which houses the library, IT facilities and a modern lecture theatre. The Foss Building houses our sports hall, a physiology laboratory, a biomechanics lab, a psychology lab, a fitness suite, physiotherapy labs and general teaching rooms.
In recent years the campus has expanded to include Nestlé Rowntree Park Sports Campus, one of the largest sports facilities of its kind in the country. This site is home to the School of Sport and includes 3G football and rugby pitches, tennis and netball courts, grass pitches, a sports barn, a strength and conditioning suite, social spaces and teaching facilities.
