University of Northampton

The University of Northampton is a university in Northampton, Northamptonshire, UK. In 1924, Northampton Technical College was opened at St George's Avenue, site of the current Avenue Campus. A new building for the college was formally opened by the then Duke and Duchess of York in 1932. A School of Art opened later in 1937. At the beginning of the 1970s, Northamptonshire was one of the few counties in England to lack a teacher-training college. A teacher-training college in Liverpool lost its home and was transferred to what is now the Park Campus of the University of Northampton. The college was opened by the then Secretary of State for Education and Science, Margaret Thatcher, in 1972. In 1975, this teacher-training college amalgamated with the college of technology and art to become Nene College of Higher Education, taking its name from the River Nene in Northamptonshire. In 1993, the College incorporated St. Andrew's School of Occupational Therapy and was granted taught degree awarding powers. In 1994 it took in the Leathersellers College and in 1997 the Sir Gordon Roberts College of Nursing and Midwifery.

I went to University of Northampton as an exchange student. I enjoyed my semester there, but neither the city nor the uni are ideal. Most students live off campus, so the dorms were primarily inhabited by foreign exchange students.

  • Maria Ly is quite literally a Rock Star. You’ll often find her hanging off a 5.13a grade rock climbing route, she is the rock star co-founder of Skimble (which is incubated by Rock Health), and you can find her rock formation photography featured in Outside Magazine.

  • March 13, 1988 was the day we moved to America. Although it wasn't my first time in the country, that date was the beginning of my journey through the American school system. Those eleven years filled me with a lifetime of great memories.

  • Mayank is an inventor and zebra-enthusiast. He developed Stripespotter, a biological barcode scanner for zebras, and is a part of the team behind Facebook insights. By way of India to Oman to the US, Mayank can be found behind the wheel of a red Porsche dreaming up his next big idea.
