With all the on-site facilities you could wish for, Edge Hill's campus combines original buildings and landscaped gardens from the 1930's with new buildings and up-to-date facilities. Whether you are studying quietly in the Learning Resource Centre, enjoying a game of pool with friends in the venue, strolling around the lake or working out in our fully equipped fitness suite, there's something to suit everyone, all on one site.
Edge Hill's main campus is spacious, modern and exceptionally well-equipped. Following the opening of the £9 million Faculty of Education in September 2004, our latest development is for performing arts, adding to the on-site Rose Theatre with rehearsal rooms, practice studios, new classrooms and offices.
We believe our campus to be the best in the North West. Our industry standard resources include a newsroom, Apple Macintosh studios, TV studio and video editing facilities, sound booths, 3D animation studio, dance studio, model classroom and biomechanics, kinanthropomentry and psychology laboratories.

A special feature of the Edge Hill Program is the Field Experience in Education. This program provides opportunities for students to take some study abroad courses and observe classes in a British school.
Students in the spring may take additional courses not listed in the Study Abroad Catalogue. They will need to stay for an additional two weeks for that exam period and pay the extra cost of $500.
