College facilities and information
Our library is one of the most popular rooms in the building. It is a substantial specialist library which holds a wide range of key texts, journals and dissertations. There is plenty of support and assistance available from our librarian Cath.
College Librarian Cath Mortimer
"I really enjoy running our friendly library here at the College. It is a substantial specialist library, holding a wide range of key texts, journals and dissertations. It covers both Chinese medicine and nutrition, along with the Western medical texts which our students need. I also help students to access an amazing variety of items from the huge range of references which are available online. Contact with our students and staff can be inspirational, and the library is a focal point for enthusiastic exchange of ideas. It’s brilliant to be at the centre of it all!"
Wireless internet and IT
We have wireless internet access throughout the building and a number of PCs for student use here in the College and we expect all written work to be submitted in word-processed form.
Online learning resources
You will have access to a range of online resources including our virtual learning environment (VLE) on Moodle which gives you access to all course materials, discussion forums, e-learning sessions and a variety of other online resources and information about the College. You will also have access to a range of online journals appropriate to your academic needs.
There is good access to the whole College for students with disabilities who also have permission to park in the College car park.
Our College car park is for staff and clinic patients’ use only. There are several long stay car parks close by with the nearest being Nunnery Lane. Many of our students use the various “park and ride” facilities on the outskirts of the city with a drop off point on Rougier Street, which is a 5 minute walk from the College.
Coming by train
We are a ten minute walk from the station. Full time BSc and MSc students are entitled to a railcard to help toward the cost of rail travel.
There is a wide range of accommodation to choose from in York. We are centrally located with plenty of choice close to the College including guest houses, back-packers, budget and mid-range hotels. Many of our students stay with local families who offer reasonably priced bed and breakfast accommodation in their homes. Expect to pay £20 - £60 a night for bed and breakfast.
