CAMPUS FACILITIES

Library:
The main University Library is the J B Morrell Library situated on the campus within easy walking distance of departments and colleges. It contains over 650,000 books and subscribes to over 3,000 print journals. The Library has collections of government publications, statistical series, microforms and audiovisual materials. Most of the stock is on open access, enabling readers to browse freely, and seating is provided for 650 readers.

Computer lab:
Yes

Location:
Most of the University's activity is concentrated on the main campus at Heslington, a short distance from the city centre of York. The campus is a large expanse of landscaped parkland which provides a pleasant and traffic-free environment for both work and leisure. The second campus is in the city centre, at the King's Manor near York's famous Minster.

Travelling to and from York is easy as the city is on the main high-speed rail line from London to Scotland so all parts of the UK can be reached easily and quickly. Access from abroad is also straightforward. London's Heathrow airport is about 3 hours away, Manchester only two. Mainland Europe can be reached through the nearby port of Hull.

Housing :
York guarantees accommodation to all single full-time overseas students for the duration of their study and offers a limited amount of accommodation for students with families.
Accommodation for single students is normally in single study-bedrooms in one of the seven colleges or in University accommodation close to the campus. Accommodation is available during vacations if required.
Most University accommodation is situated on or within a mile of the campus and is conveniently located for the centre of York. Charges for undergraduates in single University accommodation in 2001/02 are expected to range from 48.58 to 56.60 per week (this includes heating, lighting and room cleaning).
