Royal visit to the Allam Medical building

Health Campus

On 16 November 2017, Her Majesty The Queen performed the Opening Ceremony of the Allam Medical Building, the heart of the University of Hull’s £28-million health campus.

Our students, graduates and staff make a vital contribution to the improving the health of people in the region and beyond, and this investment enables us to extend our impact through the delivery of pioneering teaching and research.

The Allam Medical Building achieved success in the Buildings That Inspire category in The Guardian’s University Awards 2018.

It is home to the Faculty of Health Sciences, which includes the Hull York Medical School; the Department of Biomedical Sciences; the Department of Psychology, the Department of Sport, Health and Exercise Science; the Department of Midwifery and Child Health; the Department of Nursing; the Department of Paramedical, Perioperative and Advanced Practice; and the Department of Psychological Health, Wellbeing and Social Work. 

We have courses available in a range of health-related subjects, including: 



We're training outstanding graduates

Addressing the shortage of doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers, we play a pivotal role in developing students who shape the region’s healthcare workforce.

Boasting a simulated operating theatre, hospital ward and intensive care unit, the Allam Medical Building allows students to train in a real life setting from the start – giving them the skills and confidence to easily transition into a clinical setting.
