About the Hugh Baird University Centre

Housed in our state-of-the-art L20 building, our University Centre is the dedicated place for all of our 400+ degree-level students studying with us.


With a relaxed open-plan study area, a specialist library and resource centre, a flexible performance space, and some great refreshment areas, everything you need is right here on campus.

We’re continually investing in our facilities and resources to help our students get the very best from their university experience. Alongside our superb creative facilities, unique enterprise zone and extensive digital library of study materials, we’re committed to expanding our courses with extensive industry links and highly experienced lecturers.


Money Matters

We want to make your university education as flexible and affordable as possible. Investing in your future doesn’t need to be a financial burden. We offer a number of financial support options to help you go further by staying local.

Financial support

Life in Liverpool

We are located in the suburb of Bootle, approximately four miles outside of Liverpool’s vibrant city centre. The city’s reputation for friendly, down to earth people, passionate sporting roots, comedy and music is known worldwide.

Trips & Visits

Many of our courses include educational trips to international destinations such as New York, Milan, Prague and Paris. But, during Freshers’ Week, students have their own tour of Liverpool, so you’ll not only get your bearings and find all of the best ‘places to be’, but you’ll also meet new friends from the very start of your university experience.

Not quite ready for a Foundation Degree?

Our ‘Foundation Degree with Optional Integrated Foundation Entry’ courses are designed for those who want to study for a foundation degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications.

Career Focused

We work with many different industries to ensure that our programmes have that vocational edge. The courses are work related, aimed at those who prefer to take a vocational route and build up skills to develop their careers. They include the skills and knowledge you will require to progress in the real world and succeed in the competitive jobs market.

Policies & Procedures

Our commitment to you is important and we therefore need regulations, policies and codes of conduct, which are designed to protect and maintain both academic quality and your rights and responsibilities as students of the Hugh Baird University Centre.
