Student life

We know that there is life outside of lectures, and that’s why we invest in student experience as well as libraries and classrooms. 

UEA campus is lively and active mini-city and there’s always something happening. On The Street, you can open a bank account, do laundry, get your bike fixed or grab a coffee. 

When you join us at UEA, you become part of a community. We are here to help you find hobbies and pursue your interests. The wide range of extracurricular activities and over 250 societies mean we’re confident that you will find your passion and like-minded friends.  

The SU has a massive calendar of free events and activities, three bars, global food, a live music venue, community spaces and a hub of student services, to support you with anything academic, housing or welfare-related. 

Beyond campus, Norwich is a city of culture. You’ll follow cobbled lanes to visit iconic medieval halls and besure to taste the delights of our local eaters.

Campus and facilities

UEA’s campus is like a mini city- It’s big enough to find your niche but small enough to call home. From the iconic architecture designed by Denys Lasdum in the 1960’s to the unknown eye might look like a concert jungle but has secured it place in architecture history. It was futuristic then and this continue as we grew with the Sainsburys Art centre and Enterprise centre thinking about sustainability and layout. Even the Avenger movie used us as it headquarters a homage to our campus being unique. Don’t worry if you’re not big on buildings as we have 360 acres of campus which is home to 5,793 different species of plant and animal, including 108 which are rare or endangered. You could say we have it all with amazing on-campus facilities like the Ziggurats that face the lake and not to be missed sunsets.
