Heslington West :: Shared Description

The original Heslington campus at the University of York is now referred to as Heslington West to differentiate it from the more recent Heslington East campus. Construction began on this campus in 1964, building on the grounds of Heslington Hall. The Hall still remains housing various administrative arms of the university. The west campus is built around a large artificial lake (Scullion's Lake) with Central Hall roughly in the middle of the lake and forming a major landmark on the campus. As well as students, the university is home to large numbers of waterfowl, especially geese (Barnacle, Canadian, Greylag and Lesser Snow), ducks (with a large variety of species), swans (Mute and Black), Coots and Moorhens. Running through the north of the campus is University Road, with Chemistry, Alcuin College, the library and a few other buildings to the north of it. On the south west Heslington Lane runs from Heslington to Fulford splitting Halifax college and 22 acres sports fields from the rest of the campus.
