The university's second campus is known as City Campus, and is the home of the Worcester Business School. The campus opened in September 2010 on the site of the former Worcester Royal Infirmary in Infirmary Walk. The buildings of the original infirmary, which remain, are the work of the noted eighteenth century architect Anthony Keck.
St John's Campus
The university's main campus is known as St John's and is the main base for all courses, support departments and academic institutes, except those related to business, computing, marketing or management.
The University plans to develop a third campus on the disused Grove Farm, a 47-acre (190,000 m2) piece of land 1-mile (1.6 km) from St John's campus. This third site is expected to take fifteen years to complete and will form part of a Business and Enterprise Park alongside expanded science, business and sport institutes.
Riverside and Worcester Arena
The University occupies a large site adjacent to the River Severn, now known as "Riverside". This includes an Art Space & Exhibition building, and will soon have a 2000-seat Sports Arena built as a new facility for sports, events, a base for the Worcester Wolves basketball team, and as a further teaching and office space. The facility, to be called Worcester Arena, will be accessible to the local community.
Since 2005, the University has expanded greatly and acquired many new sites across the city of Worcester. Its long term strategy includes building joint community and University facilities, and expanding to a 3rd campus.
