Ulster University (Irish: Ollscoil Uladh; Ulster Scots: Ulstèr Universitie or Ulstèr Varsitie), legally the University of Ulster, is a multi-campus public university located in Northern Ireland. It is often referred to informally and unofficially as Ulster, or by the abbreviation UU. It is the largest university in Northern Ireland and the second-largest university on the island of Ireland, after the federal National University of Ireland.
Established in 1968 as the New University of Ulster, it merged with Ulster Polytechnic in 1984, incorporating its four Northern Irish campuses under the University of Ulster banner. The university incorporated its four campuses in 1984; located in Belfast, Coleraine, Derry (Magee College), and Jordanstown. The university has branch campuses in both London and Birmingham, and an extensive distance learning provision. The university rebranded as Ulster University from October 2014 and this included a revised visual identity, though its legal name remained unchanged. It has one of the highest further study and employment rates in the UK, with over 92% of graduates being in work or further study six months after graduation. The university is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the European University Association, Universities Ireland and Universities UK.
We're bringing a new vision for learning to the centre of Belfast. Welcome to a £250m inner city investment that will extend the already vibrant Cathedral Quarter to include a 75,000sqm campus with up to 15,000 students and staff.
The new campus will deliver a progressive student experience in a state-of-the art city centre campus, benefitting from innovative learning spaces at the forefront of higher education in Belfast. It will offer students and researchers so many different types of learning and collaboration spaces, connected by an incredible sky bridge:
With the new campus set to begin welcoming staff and students from September (Covid restrictions permitting), the University is lifting the lid on the architecture of the landmark new development and offering a peek inside in the form of the ‘campus by numbers.’
The Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment consists of four Schools, offering industry-informed, professionally recognised courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The School of Computing which is based at the Jordanstown campus aims to provide students with a supportive environment for their studies, thus providing them with the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
Our courses are kept relevant and up-to-date by engaging with professional bodies such as the British Computer Society, maintaining strong links with the computing sector locally, and integrating our research into our curriculum development. All courses have an integrated placement year, which has proven to be invaluable in helping graduates to secure professional employment locally, nationally and globally.
The School has core teaching competencies at undergraduate level: in the areas of interactive multimedia design; computing technologies; computing science; and software engineering. The School also offers a popular fast-track part-time undergraduate degree in Computing Systems.
Research within the School focuses around two main research groups:
These are complimentary groups, which often collaborate to apply theoretical models in a real world context, thus having a direct and positive impact on our society.
The BCS (British Computer Society), the Chartered Institute for IT, accredits our computing courses.
The Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC) is a state-of-the-art research environment established in 2007 with an extensive array of leading-edge robotic devices.
Ulster University’s Cognitive Analytics Research Lab (CARL) is a cutting edge cognitive analytics research centre bringing together businesses, government and advanced research expertise.
Pervasive Computing Research Centre (PCRG) is focused on multi-disciplinary and collaborative research in sensor-based technologies, and applications in behavioural analysis, activity recognition, and assistive technologies for healthcare and independent living.
Artificial Intelligence Research Centre (AIRG) is focused on Knowledge and Data Engineering including machine learning, knowledge representation and reasoning, informatics and systems, and foundations of artificial intelligence.
Ireland Innovation Centre(BTIIC) is a five-year project funded by £9M from Invest Northern Ireland and representing a major partnership between BT and Ulster University. BTIIC is at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Telecommunications.
Connected Health Innovation Centre (CHIC) is focused on business led research in the area of connected health.

Willie Jack has owned the Duke since the early ’80s but it already had plenty of unique Northern Irish character. It was a pub for 200 years but got blown up in 1972 – terrorists were going to bomb the High Court but came to a security checkpoint and bolted up the alleyway to get away. The bomb went off prematurely and flattened the pub. It wasn’t targeted but it had to be rebuilt. Today it’s known for the history of Belfast distilling which is visible on bric-a-brac inside, the murals, the Belfast phrases covering the place. For 30 years Willie saved up precious Belfast ephemera from pubs across the nine counties of Ulster, and continues to do so. Everything on display is original and true Belfast, it’s got provenance. Added to that are the new murals from guest artists which cover most of the walls outside.
Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and The Crown Liquor Saloon near you is certainly no exception. Dating back to the 1880s, The Crown is a gem of the Victorian era. Formerly known as The Liquor Saloon in Great Victoria Street, Belfast, our ageless and priceless pub was one of the mightiest Victorian Gin Palaces in the city, and still boasts many of its original features, including gaslighting. Refurbished in 1885, and at least twice since, The Crown is a grade A listed building owned by the National Trust and is a truly stunning example of a traditional Victorian gin palace.
