Architectural teaching in Huddersfield has a history dating back over 90 years; the town is a fine example of buildings from the traditional to the modern; a number of which can be found in and around the University precinct. Huddersfield's position mid-way between the cities of Leeds and Manchester means it is ideally placed to explore diversity in architecture at a range of scales within a regional and global context.
