We’ve also invested in the following to ensure we provide the very best facilities to support our students throughout their studies:

Two new, purpose-built gyms were opened at our Luton and Bedford campuses in 2015.
Each gym offers a range of cardiovascular and weights machines along with a free weights area. Located on campus, the gyms offer a convenient way to keep fit with affordable and flexible membership options.
Our healthcare students are based in dedicated facilities at our Buckinghamshire campus (Aylesbury), which is fully equipped with contemporary clinical skills labs, simulation suite, and an on-site Learning Resources Centre (LRC).
The University of Bedfordshire’s Luton campus is situated in the heart of the town centre, with high street shops, supermarkets, and the train station all within walking distance.
Students studying at the Bedford campus have access to a free University shuttle bus, giving quick and easy access to the train station and town centre.
Both campuses are within a 40 minute train journey to London, and are within close proximity to London Luton Airport.
