At the University of Bolton we are a community of professionals committed to developing our students for their professional lives.

With a student body of around 13,000 you will get the best of all worlds at Bolton – learning at a small, friendly university where no one feels anonymous, in a thriving town close to the big cities of Manchester and Liverpool. Longing for some fresh country air? We're also just an hour's train ride from the spectacular natural beauty of the Lake District, one of England's most stunning locations.

Campus life offers you a bright range of facilities – not only for learning and for supporting you though your studies – but also for making new friends and exercising your body as well as your mind!

Housed in our Student Centre are all the support services you may need to call on during your student life – from the student accommodation team to the careers service.

The Students' Union (SU) has a range of activities and we have a thriving International Society which brings together students from all nations to share each others' cultures and explore Britain together.

The Sport and Recreation Service provides plenty of opportunities for when you need to run off some energy – we have a great selection of clubs and classes – not just for the energetic but also for those who need some chilled out calm in their lives.

And when you need to refuel we have a range of eating places to suit your mood – from the coffee bar atmosphere of Athena Café to the hearty fare of Eagle Restaurant and Deane Deli.

At the centre of the campus is the Social Learning Zone (SLZ) and SU facilities.The SLZ gives you space to study in a relaxed atmosphere where you can work in a group, online, and in networks – or just use the space to relax and meet up with friends. There are formal tables and comfy sofas – whatever's right for your needs.

The SU has offices and an advice centre in the SLZ and upstairs is the SU bar - The Loft.

Our Library Services  are on hand to help with your studies and we have first class computing and media services, including a 24-7 computer room for students so you can pound the keyboards day or night! And if you'd rather bring your own laptop we offer free WiFi so you can get online, on campus anytime, anywhere!
