Our community

The University of Bedfordshire has six campuses located in Luton, Bedford, Aylesbury and Milton Keynes. All our campuses offer close-knit and friendly environments where staff are encouraged to interact and work effectively together.

The University has undertaken a multi-million pound development with £180m invested in state-of-the-art facilities at our campuses between 2006 and 2013.

This investment includes new en-suite student halls, teaching and research facilities, campus centres and a superb Postgraduate and CPD Centre in Luton. Our newest campus at Milton Keynes, UCMK, opened in 2013. And there’s more to come, including a new teaching building at Bedford and seven-storey library in Luton.
