A seven-time Green Flag Award winner, Whiteknights Campus is a beautiful green space bountiful with life. This is a great place for staff and students alike - and especially for biological scientists.
A world in 321 acres
Whiteknights Campus is an award-winning green space, and with good reason: a walk from one end of the site to the other takes you through numerous environments and picturesque areas. At the north of the campus, you will find the great Whiteknights Lake, a large body of water bordered by rich deciduous woods and home to many different animal species. From the common Mallard duck to less common breeds such as the Swedish Blue and the Mandarin, you can see ducks alongside geese, coots, moorhens and the occasional elegant shape of a grebe or a cormorant.
Walking southwards, you will pass through verdant meadows where stands of solemn copses of pine and oak trees stand sentinel. If you have an eagle eye, you may see pheasants in the shade of the trees. As you reach the southern end of the campus, you will find yourself walking through a dense woodland with thick underbrush. To the west of this woodland, you will find the beautiful Harris Garden, an ideal place for rest and reflection.
