Is UEA campus all just concrete buildings?
The first parts of UEA’s campus were built in 1962 and those parts naturally reflect the architecture styles of the time – which does mean we have some concrete buildings. But we’re proud of them!
The original UEA teaching wall and our much-loved “Ziggurat” accommodation buildings were really forward thinking for their time and we’ve stayed true to that heritage every time our campus has grown with new buildings.
In 2015 we finished Britain’s greenest building for the time, our Enterprise Centre. And then there's Crome Court, an accommodation building that has also won environmental awards.
On top of that the campus is home to one of Norman Foster’s most celebrated buildings, The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts – a building so futuristic that it was selected to be the home of The Avengers in their recent movies.
But building’s aren’t the whole story – our campus is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, features a serene lake and mixes striking architecture and picture-postcard views.
We think we have one of the best campus locations, but don’t just take our word for it - book an open day and experience UEA for yourself.
