The University of Northampton
Waterside Campus, University Drive, Northampton, NN1 5PH
There’s lots of public car parks in close vicinity to campus and the sustainable travel routes are excellent, though there will be no parking on campus and no residential parking at our on campus halls aside from for those who hold a blue badge due to mobility issues. You can use the link above to explore travel options to Waterside.
This year the Summer Reading Challenge is called Mischief Makers. You can sign up at your local library and read six books to meet the challenge.
At the summer reading challenge website you can explore suggested books, play games, take part in competitions and browse book recommendations.
