Student life

The Best of Both Worlds

With UCBB located within 890 hectares of stunning East Yorkshire countryside, you’d be forgiven for presuming that all we had to offer was fields, but UCBB offers you access to so much more.

There’s no wonder Yorkshire has been nicknamed God’s Own Country. It’s packed with quaint villages, historic towns, fun cities and areas of outstanding natural beauty. The landscape is outstanding, the people are friendlier and it’s cheaper. What’s not to love?!

Plus, our small group sizes mean that you’ll make friends from day one, ready to head to one of our on campus events or to explore the local area, from the stunning Yorkshire coastline to bustling cities.

You’re never far from your next adventure... We’re not far from the M62 and the train links from nearby Beverley, Hull and
Brough connect you to the whole country. Hop on a train in Brough and you can be in London in less than 2.5 hours!
