The University of Northampton is a public university based in Northampton, Northamptonshire, England. It was formed in 1999 by the amalgamation of a number of training colleges and gained full university status as The University of Northampton in 2005.

The University of Northampton does things a little differently. The university is set in the heart of England, in Northamptonshire – just an hour outside London and Birmingham – and is moving to a brand new campus in 2018. The university is dedicated to supporting student experience, employability and helping grow individuals who are empowered to bring about social change.

More than 14,000 students attend courses in the arts, science and technology, business, education, health and social sciences in the university's two campuses  near the town centre, with Avenue campus just 1 mile away, and Park campus within easy walking distance.

 The university has seen a substantial investment in campus facilities in the past few years, including a refurbished library at Park campus. Social enterprise is at the heart of the student community at Northampton, and all students have the opportunity, as part of their degree course, to work in a social enterprise. The university was the first higher education institution in the UK to achieve Changemaker Campus status from Ashoka U, the world's leading network of social entrepreneurs.

The student union provides a variety of entertainment events at its two locations.

        Northampton is the main town of Northamptonshire; a traditional market town it offers plenty of opportunities to shop – with retail parks and shopping villages that include independent shops as well as high-street brands. There are also plenty of bars, pubs and clubs all around the town, and Northampton nightlife has been regularly praised in reviews. Northampton itself is a big market town with some attractive green spaces and architecture.
