St John's Campus
The University was founded on our St John’s Campus more than 70 years ago.
Located in the friendly residential community of St John’s, nearby to shops and pubs, it is an easy walk to the city centre, with excellent transport links.
The parkland site features a range of halls of residence, teaching spaces, sports facilities and is also the main home of Worcester Students’ Union.
The campus also houses the University’s National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit, which has been producing the national pollen forecasts for more than two decades, in partnership with the Met Office.
The campus offers an array of facilities, including quality teaching and learning space for any subject to enhance you studies. These include the specialist lab facilities in our Charles Darwin building, a Drama Studio, Digital Arts Centre, multigym and sports hall, and AstroTurf pitches. With wireless network and internet connections in every room, students also have access to the latest technology and learning resources. There are also multiple places to relax and socialise, including a cafeteria and coffee shops. Our one-stop shop for all student advice and support services, Firstpoint, is also located at St John’s.
