About the city
Carlisle isn’t just as pretty as a picture, thanks to its longstanding history dating back to before the Roman times it has been a significant place to live, work and study for centuries. The city itself may be based at the Northern extreme of England, with Newcastle, Glasgow and Lancaster just a short journey away, but the area’s own identity as a quality and quirky centre has kept students of multiple disciplines coming back for more.
The city’s higher education faculty, the University of Cumbria, is an excellent place to study. As well as a bevy of life changing opportunities being within reach, students here can enjoy a unique experience off campus with the university and the u-student halls positioned close to the best amenities, attractions, open spaces and nightspots. Often described as a small city with a big heart, Carlisle delivers all the facilities found in a modern day urban sprawl with the close community and friendly atmosphere rarely found in a city centre environment.
