Excellent teaching and research

The University's teaching has a reputation for excellence, and is underpinned by research of the highest quality. We achieved a silver award in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework in recognition of outstanding outcomes for our students from all backgrounds and more than 55% of our research has been rated "world leading" and "internationally excellent" in the Government's 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

Improving your campus

We've invested heavily in our campuses so that we can offer you the best possible environment to study. The £120m de Havilland campus boasts fully equipped accommodation and purpose-built academic buildings. The £10m Law Building offers spectacular facilities, including a full-scale mock courtroom. But that's not all: we have investment plans underway of more than £165m.

Location matters

Our campuses have a vibrant community spirit and are modern, self-contained and inspiring places to learn. When you need a break from studying, the cinema and shopping centre are a short walk away. Nearby Hatfield and St Albans have loads to offer, and London is less than half an hour away.

College Lane campus had good facilities, a great LRC (although even quiet floor can be very noisy), a good careers service and some nice buildings. The on-campus Starbucks and restaurants are also nice, clean, and reasonably priced. However, student shops are very expensive and de havilland campus is rather rejected in terms of the facilities and services available.


I am an international student and joined the university in January 2018. The university facilities and infrastructure is excellent. It possess a huge Learning Resource center which is so reliable and has lots of books and numerous computers and printers. I t has all the facilities to be comfy and make your time worth whilst at the University.
