More About University of York

The university campus, which is located to the southeast of York, is around 500 acres (200 hectares) big. The National Science Learning Center and the York Science Park are part of the original site, Campus West, which is notable for its wildlife, campus lakes, and greenery. On agricultural ground immediately east of the neighbouring community of Heslington, the university received approval in May 2007 to construct an addition to its main campus.
Campus East, the second campus, opened in 2009 and presently has three departments, four colleges, conference rooms, a sports village, and a “incubator” for new businesses. Additionally, the organisation rents King’s Manor in the heart of York. In 2020–21, the university earned a total of £403.6 million, of which £69.8 million came from grants and contracts for research.
With 10 colleges as of 2021, York, one of the earliest plate glass universities founded in the 1960s, has a unique collegiate structure. A twelfth college is now being built, and it will debut in 2022. York joined the Russell Group of prestigious British institutions in 2012.
