Catch up with friends at the Curve

The Curve is always a hub of activity and for good reason too. It’s a great place to catch up with friends over a bite to eat. If this isn’t enough to tempt you, what if we told you The Curve is one of three outlets across campus serving Starbucks - at student prices too!


Although we don't have on-site accommodation, there are a range of accommodation options available through private providers. Many are located within an easy walking distance of the University Centre at Blackburn College.
