University of Cumbria
About us

We are Cumbria’s University – enriching people and place. A place of and for our community. A place of possibility. A place where amazing journeys happen. With guidance and support. Where it’s safe to be brave, to be boldly you. Where you’re seen and understood. Where knowledge changes lives, communities and business. Where stand out graduates go on to untold possibilities, making a positive difference to our world.

The University of Cumbria was formed in 2007 by the merger of St Martin’s College, Cumbria Institute of the Arts and University of Central Lancashire’s Cumbria sites, operating from campuses spread across Cumbria and North Lancashire. We may be a relatively new university, but we are steeped in history dating right the way back to 1822.

The university is continuing to grow, expanding in geographical terms as well as academic scope.
