The University is situated just across the Queensgate ring road from the town centre shops and bars and within easy walking distance of the bus and railway stations.

It is based mostly in modern blocks and recently-converted mill buildings on one campus alongside the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.

The university continues its modern expansion which in recent years has included a newly-built Creative Arts Building, Business School, 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, Student Central building, sports hall and new Oastler Building and Barbara Hepworth Building.

There has been recent growth in the number of student accommodation buildings close to the campus with a further accommodation campus at Storthes Hall, Kirkburton, about three miles from the main campus with a direct bus service.

The University of Huddersfield was awarded the Times Higher Education University of the Year in November 2013 in recognition of its exceptional performance in the past academic year. It followed the Times Higher Education Entreprenuerial University of the Year award a year earlier. Since that time it has gone on to win a number of other awards including a Gold-rated University status from the Teaching Excellence Framework.
