The King Alfred Campus also includes the University Centre (Student Union), the Chapel, a state-of-the-art gym and other sports facilities and Faculty buildings where the majority of lectures and seminars take place. Many undergraduate students live in the halls of residence on the King Alfred Campus, Queens Road and Burma Road (opened in 2013) or in the accommodation at nearby West Downs.

The Link Gallery is also located on the campus. It is open to the general public and runs an exhibition programme throughout the year featuring established and emerging artists from the world of visual arts. The Research and Knowledge Exchange Centre is also based at West Downs. It is dedicated to research, enterprise and consultancy. It provides excellent resources for postgraduate students, particularly research students as it is the centre of research administration and support services.
