Liverpool CAMPUS

In the heart of Liverpool city centre, our Metquarter Campus is the first education institution in the UK to transform a retail plaza into a state of the art media, music and performing arts campus. 

Our on campus neighbours such as Costa Coffee, Everyman Cinema and 200 Degrees etc make it a great place to chill out after a day in the dance studio or creative suites. Everything you need is right here. There’s even Liverpool’s largest Food Hall GPO Food Hall, with twelve independent kitchens serving over 400 dishes from 8:30am every day.

With the largest collection of museums and galleries anywhere outside of the Capital, Liverpool’s culture and heritage is at the very heart of the city. A vibrant city led by a strong commitment to music, sport, culture and independent retail and hospitality.  So with all that  covered, you might even be interested in the odd bar or two!! The Liverpool nightlife has become world famous, with something for everyone.
