University of East Anglia

Norwich, England

Founded in 1963, the University of East Anglia (UEA) is spread over 300 acres of parkland, located 1.5 miles from the medieval cathedral city of Norwich. From all parts of University Plain, as the campus is known, there are open views across the river to woods, meadows and playing fields. The buildings are grouped together, following the natural contours of the land and linked by elevated pedestrian walkways that provide high-level walks between teaching buildings and residences, restaurants, snack bars and the library. UEA is home to about 15,000 students.

    Location & Facilities

    Location

    UEA is located just outside Norwich, England, 115 miles northeast of London. The historic city of Norwich has a population of close to 150,000, giving it a cosmopolitan atmosphere that offers numerous attractions to students, as well as the opportunity to participate in the social and cultural life of a provincial English city. During the Middle Ages, Norwich was the second most important city in England, boasting a fine Norman cathedral and castle, and a host of medieval buildings. Now at the heart of the dynamic East Anglia region, the city is a thriving commercial center with a bustling open-air market surrounded by department stores, specialty shops, restaurants, and some 300 pubs.

    There is also a rich variety of entertainment to choose from, including numerous lively restaurants, nightclubs, theaters, and musical venues. Norwich has a peaceful side too: quiet gardens, cobbled pedestrian streets, five museums and an art gallery. Everywhere, you see evidence of the old and new coexisting together: the architectural modernity of the University is complemented by the medieval elegance of the city. Old buildings are rarely conserved as museum pieces - a 13th century crypt is used as a coffee bar serving a 15th century friary which is used as a concert hall.
