The University of East Anglia in Norwich is one of the seven so-called ‘new universities’. It was founded in 1961, and had its first students in 1963. Since 1963 the University has grown fast.
UEA combines the traditional high standards of British universities with an imaginative approach to course design. The academic work of the University is based on thirteen Schools of Study. They are made up of subjects, which are connected with each other. The small group teaching has always been a feature of our courses.
UEA is beautifully situated in 270 acres of park and woodland outside Norwich. The main campus, University Plain, offers everything a student needs, within easy reach. The buildings are modern and have considerable architectural distinction.
The main academic building, known as the Teaching Wall, was designed by the well-known architect Sir Denys Lasdun. It was completed in 1972 and houses nine of our schools of study providing lecture and seminar rooms, offices, laboratories, common rooms and others.
Our oldest building, Earlham Hall, dates back to the sixteenth century. It houses the School of Law, and is located in Earlham Park a short walk from the main campus.
Our two most recent academic buildings the Climatic Research building and the Education building were opened in 1986. They are both designed by the young American architect Rick Mather.
At the centre of the campus is the Square, the main outdoor meeting place. Here students come between classes to talk, to refresh themselves with drinks, or simply to sit at the side of the pond and the little waterfall.
