The University of Bolton (formerly Bolton Institute of Higher Education or simply Bolton Institute) is a public university in Bolton, Greater Manchester, England. It has approximately 6,000 students across all sites and courses, with 700 academic and professional staff.

 Bolton has enjoyed a large rise in applications in recent years, and has undertaken a multimillion-pound development programme to match. Beginning with the completion of the £2.5m social learning zone, student union and 24/7 computing facilities, the campus transformation has continued apace. A further £10m has been spent to create top-specification arts, media and technologies facilities and Bolton One, a £31m health, leisure and research centre managed by the university, Bolton council and NHS Bolton has opened on campus. Sports and leisure facilities include a new sports hall, 50ft climbing wall, 25-metre swimming pool, dance studio and gym.

 

Bolton is one of the largest towns in the UK, and has excellent motorway and rail links to major cities such as Liverpool. Manchester is just a 20-minute train journey. The Lake District, West Pennine Moors and Yorkshire Dales are within easy reach, and the bright lights of Blackpool are just an hour away.
