Living in the area

The Jordanstown campus is situated seven miles north of Belfast. The campus has impressive views of the Lough, the Belfast Hills and County Down. The proximity of the campus to Belfast is a major attraction for those who choose to live in the city and travel to the campus in private car or via the excellent rail, bus and taxi network.

The campus has a village feel and is laid out around a central and busy mall which forms the main spine for 17 blocks of academic study and recreational facilities. The mall area is home to banks, restaurants, coffee shops, sandwich bars, a supermarket, the chaplain’s office and the Students’ Union. Study facilities include science and computing laboratories, Physiotherapy, Optometry and Podiatry clinics and a modern Learning Resource Centre.
