Wiki:

University Campus Suffolk, a collaboration between the University of Essex, the University of East Anglia, partner colleges and local government, began accepting its first students in September 2007. The main Ipswich based waterfront campus building is due for completion in September 2008. Prior to this Suffolk was one of the few English counties not to contain a University campus.

Still, Herefordshire doesn't even feature a University Campus.

Ahh, Herefordshire.. I was born there

Excellent place, all the better for not having a university. Although my grandparents (who live in Herefordshire) told me a while ago that there for some plan for the Tech to offer degree level things.

I'm suprised (well, not suprised, more angry) that quite an obvious one has been missed.

Northumberland people!

Unless you still class Newcastle as being in Northumberland. In which case it has two.

Cumbria didn't of course until recently, just various colleges, UClam campus (which used to be a Northumbria campus).

Does Cornwall have one?

Still, Northumberland is one of the largest counties in the country and it just gets ignored. Again (much like its National Park). It's what you get for being so provicincial

This really comes down with how strictly we are applying counties. Are we going by tradtional (pre 1974 councils) in which case Tyne and Wear doesn't exist. Northumberland has two unis, County Durham has two.

Isle of Wight used to be part of Hampshire didn't it? So that would be excluded.

So are we going by the county boundaries as they stand today?

lovely place, but one of those places where its 99.9% posh white farmers off foxhunting for the day.
quite pleasant though, quaint little towns and very un-commercialised without things like chain coffe stores :yy:
