Welcome to Guild House

Students at Guild House

Our Guild House, Peterborough building opened in 2011. It’s a dedicated health, education and social care campus where we train many of our region’s nurses, midwives, social workers and education professionals.

Studying at Guild House means you'll be part of our smaller university community of just under 1,200 students. We offer a range of courses here, including adult nursing, midwifery, social work and primary education studies.

We’re really proud of our superb modern skills lab, complete with state-of-the-art equipment designed to mirror a real-life ward environment. If you're joining us as a nursing or midwifery student, you’ll use the lab to develop your practical skills such as moving and handling, resuscitation, bed making, aseptic techniques and infection control.

Our library has plenty of space for group work and discussion, individual silent study, multimedia, networked PCs, and wifi. It is complemented by an extensive digital library, giving you access to databases, e-journals and e-books whenever you need it. The library’s opening hours vary at different times of year, but you’ll find our friendly and expert staff on hand at reception to offer support.

On the second floor of Guild House we have a café and large breakout area, where you can grab a bite to eat or catch up with friends. There’s also seating for those of you who want to enjoy some quiet time in between lectures.

If you fancy a change of scene, you'll find more shops and cafés within a five-minute walk of Guild House. And if you’re an avid football fan, the local team (The Posh) are right in the next road.

Life on campus… and off

If you’re a first-year undergraduate, the chances are you’ll live in our university houses and flats with other ARU students. Many of our students also live in NHS hospital accommodation while on placement, so there are plenty of opportunities to get to know people and socialise.

From Guild House, the centre of Peterborough is just across the river. Visit the Living in Peterborough page for more information about things to see and do in the city.
