About York St John University

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.

Our 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. 

Our award winning campus has undergone a £90 million transformation over the past 10 years to ensure students benefit from the right environment in which to study and live. 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. Other facilities include a dance studio, drama studio, music rooms (both practical and technical), TV and film production facilities, editing suites and dedicated art and design studios. There is a number of catering outlets and the Students’ Union has a bar, café, shop and offices on campus.
