Campus facilities

At ARU College we believe that excellent campus facilities are essential in providing the support and resources required to make the most of your studies. In the last five years ARU has invested over £80 million in campus developments, with a further £124 million planned over the next 5 years. Among the specialist facilities are:

  • a suite of forensic science laboratories, complete with a scene of crime unit;
  • 4 University Libraries (including an extensive Digital Library in addition to our on-site print collections);
  • a suite of multimedia sound and recording studios;
  • a Human Energetics Sports Science Laboratory;
  • a University Eye Clinic;
  • simulated hospital wards and operating theatres;
  • bespoke counselling rooms;
  • the 266 seat Mumford Theatre;
  • 2 art galleries; Ruskin Gallery in Cambridge, with its ground-breaking digital exhibition space, and Rivermead Gallery in Chelmsford;
  • a mock courtroom, for our Law students;
  • a state-of-the-art Language Centre; and
  • Multimedia Language Laboratories.
