The geography

We talk about Middlesbrough, Teesside and the Tees Valley so what's what? Our main campus is in Middlesbrough - a friendly northern town with friendly northern spirit. Teesside is the conurbation surrounding Middlesbrough and includes Billingham, Redcar, Stockton-on-Tees and Thornaby. And the Tees Valley is the combined authority area that includes the five unitary authorities of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees.
