About us

Our University Centre is an impressive and inspirational landmark for Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire, providing students with the opportunity to study higher education in world-class surroundings.

The facilities inside the iconic building include state-of-the-art lecture theatres, research facilities, clinical skills rooms, computer suites, studios for television and radio broadcast, the Corner Lounger (a fully-licensed bar) and the Atrium eatery, offering delicious snacks and meals at your convenience.

All this is in addition to our existing campus amenities, which include a café and food outlets offering a range of delicious hot and cold food, such as our award winning refectory.

Our campus shop offers a range of publications, a book ordering service and a wide variety of learning materials alongside confectionary, groceries, hot food and Costa Coffee. We are also host to the Graduate Salon, our very own hair and beauty salon, offering the latest treatments and therapies at competitive rates.

If you want some peace and quiet or somewhere to read or study we have two learning centres, with study rooms also available. Furthermore, as we continue to make higher education accessible to all our communities, our award-winning childcare facilities on campus help make gaining a high-quality education easier for everyone.

Student support

At the University Centre Grimsby (UCG), we are committed to helping all students achieve their potential with our outstanding support services.

If you think you need additional support with your studies, please contact us prior to starting your programme and we will offer all the advice and guidance you need.

We also offer screening for dyslexia, dyspraxia and scotopic sensitivity, which are hidden learning disabilities that can inhibit the progression of some students.

UCG has a facility for the visually impaired, located within the Learning Resource Centre, and staff are on hand to assist students. Student with disabilities are supported and given the opportunity to apply for the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), which is a government fund administered by Student Finance England that can pay for specialist equipment or other kinds of support.

Our Disability Advisors will ensure that you get everything you need to help you suceed.
