King Alfred Campus
Student life is centred on our King Alfred Campus within walking distance of the historic cathedral city of Winchester. In recent years, the King Alfred campus has undergone much change to enhance its facilities.The £6.5 million St Alphege building opened in 2013, as a new-state of the art learning and teaching building. Features include 10 new lecture rooms, and a mezzanine floor with open access PCs. Our Martial Rose Library has over 300,000 resources available including course-specific reading material, academic journals and DVDs. There are 600 networked PCs available for students to use across campus including the Library, faculty buildings and our social learning spaces, the Learning Café and Kenneth Kettle Building, which offer 24-hour access. We also have a new open access room being built in Medecroft.
The King Alfred Campus also includes the University Centre (Student Union), the Chapel, a state-of-the-art gym and other sports facilities and Faculty buildings where the majority of lectures and seminars take place.
Many undergraduate students live in the halls of residence on the King Alfred Campus, Queens Road and Burma Road (opened in 2013) or in the accommodation at nearby West Downs.
West Downs is a short walk away from the centre of the King Alfred Campus. It is the home of our self-catering accommodation, the West Downs Student Village,and the West Downs Centre, which is where the University's Winchester Business School is based. The centre also has social learning spaces with the latest IT equipment for students to use for individual and group work sessions.
The Link Gallery is also located on the campus. It is open to the general public and runs an exhibition programme throughout the year featuring established and emerging artists from the world of visual arts.
The Research and Knowledge Exchange Centre is also based at West Downs. It is dedicated to research, enterprise and consultancy. It provides excellent resources for postgraduate students, particularly research students as it is the centre of research administration and support services.
