Peterborough is steeped in history with the iconic Cathedral at the heart of our identity and at ARU Peterborough we’re making our own mark on the future of our city.
The new, accessible ARU Peterborough university campus is located next to the Embankment, just a short walk away from the city centre. Peterborough’s excellent transport links mean there are many of ways getting to the campus, whether you live locally or are commuting in.
Our new building includes facilities and services to ensure everyone feels comfortable and included.
We also understand that going to university isn’t just about getting a qualification but the whole student experience. It’s about making friends, building relationships, developing new skills and trying things you’ve never done before. Check out what the city of Peterborough can offer you.
In September 2022, our brand-new building, University House, welcomed its first students. We offer a wide variety of undergraduate courses and degree apprenticeships. These have been designed in collaboration with regional, national and international employers. ARU Peterborough university students will graduate with the skills ready for the workplace.
Key highlights at University House:
Peterborough aims to become the 'UK’s Environment Capital’. This means the city will strive to be able to work ‘within the resources of our planet’. At ARU Peterborough, we too believe in a healthier, fairer and more sustainable future which is why our campus has been designed with the environment in mind. We have a green roof to increase biodiversity and control rainwater run off rates. This enables natural ventilation and brings more daylight into the heart of the building. We also encourage the use of public transport by working with local travel providers and installing sufficient cycle storage alongside our building.
Students will be able to take part in activities and voice their ideas to help improve sustainability across our campus.
Our supportive tutors have a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise to enable students to get the most out of their course. Find out more about who will be teaching you at ARU Peterborough.
Students will have access to a range of health and wellbeing resources both onsite and online. We also have Student and Library services and Students' Union on campus.
