Edge Hill University


Edge Hill University is based on an attractive, award-winning 160-acre campus in Lancashire, close to Liverpool and Manchester. The institution has been providing higher education since 1885, with a mission to create opportunity from knowledge.

The institution’s significant success in achieving its mission is recognised by a range of awards and high rankings for teaching, student experience, accommodation and more. Edge Hill is ranked as Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the government’s evaluation of excellence in teaching quality, learning environment and student outcomes. The University is also one of the select few to have held the coveted UK University of the Year title, awarded by Times Higher Education (2014/15) and most recently, crowned Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.

Edge Hill University’s stunning campus is located in the heart of the North West, close to the thriving market town of Ormskirk and a short distance from LiverpoolSouthport and Manchester.

The campus has been voted top in the North West and in the top five in the UK for University facilities (WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2020) and top in the North West for learning resources (National Student Survey 2020). It has been named as the safest campus in the North West for nine consecutive years (Complete University Guide 2020) and has also been recognised as one of the top five campuses in the UK (StudentCrowd 2018) and one of the UK’s best green spaces (Green Flag Award 2021).

Our combination of beautifully landscaped grounds, state-of-the-art facilities, historic architecture, lakes and even a beach provides a unique and innovative place to study. Industry standard resources and cutting edge technology ensure a truly interactive student experience, complemented by 60 acres of sport and leisure facilities, more than 2,300 rooms in halls of residence, and plenty of places to study, socialise and relax. You can watch our student-led campus tour video and then explore the campus yourself using our Virtual Campus Tour page. 



Starting university means that you may be moving away from home for the first time. Aside from your course of study, where you choose to live will probably be one of the most important decisions you make.

Voted best value for money student accommodation in the UK (National Student Housing Awards 2019) and a finalist for best university halls (National Student Housing Awards 2019), our halls of residence are at the heart of our vibrant on-campus community, providing a space for new students to live, study and socialise on the safest University campus in the North West (Complete University Guide 2020).

Edge Hill University manages and maintains more than 2,300 single study bedrooms in halls of residence which are divided into six areas on campus. They offer excellent value for money, with a range of rooms and catering packages available depending on your requirements and your budget. You will find everything you need is just a few minutes’ walk from your room.
