    I've been looking around the main Russell Group/top 20 Uni's and it seems to be a huge majority of them are campus. Could people fill me in on any non-campus universities?

    If a uni's got a few university buildings close together they call it a campus in their publicity.

    Proper campus uni's IMO are a island of uni buildings off in the middle of the countryside with no non uni buildings around them - like Keele ferinstance.

    City universities - you walk out of a university building and the rest of the city is right there (or possibly you'd have to walk past a one or two uni buildings before you are in the city centre proper)

    Manchester uni is an obvious city centre uni whether or not it likes to talk about it's 'campus' - so is Newcastle... so are Liverpool and Birmingham too though IIRC they're a little bit further out of the city centre.

    go to some open days and sus out the lie of the land.

    Edinburgh is spread around city in clusters, Science at Kings Buildings a little like a campus, albeit in the city towards the South. Arts and Social Science around George Square, Law at Old College, Divinity at New College, all of these latter parts are a very easy walk to City Centre.

    St Andrews is also spread out through the town however some newer sections are a little distant.

    Actually few russell group universities can be defined as real campuses- the only ones I can think of are Warwick, Birmingham and Nottingham.

    Sheffield and Leeds are city central too IIRC.

    Prolly OP should tell us exactly what s/he's trying to avoid and which unis they've already rejected.
