Our community

Three students outside a university building

We want to make sure that your time at ARU is as positive and successful as it can be.


We're home to thousands of students from across the UK and around the world, and we celebrate that. Equality, diversity and inclusion is really important to us, and our Student Charter sets out the commitments we've made in this area.


If you have a question or issue, there's always someone here who can help you. As part of our commitment to your safety and wellbeing, we've introduced the SafeZone app so that you can get assistance at any time when you're on campus or in University accommodation. And our free Counselling and Wellbeing Service is available to all students.


We all remember those really great teachers from school – the ones who sparked our interest, supported and encouraged us, and really made a difference. University should be just the same.

We're proud of the fact that our students rate the teaching on their course highly, along with learning opportunities and academic support.


We know that our students are concerned for the environment and want to do all they can to promote sustainability. We feel the same way.

With our Sustainability Strategy, we're incorporating sustainability into every aspect of University life – from the research we carry out and the modules we teach, to the design and impact of our campuses.
