Find a fountain

Water fountain locations across our campuses can be viewed on the maps below.

Please note: 

  • Fountains marked yellow       can only be accessed with a University card 
  • Fountains marked purple       can only be accessed by those with an active sports membership

Fountains are available 8.30am-5.30pm, weekdays (excluding bank holidays).

We endeavour to maintain continuous operation however there is always a possibility that a fountain may be out of service. If a fountain is not working, the building's receptionist may be able to point you towards a nearby alternative.
