The grounds and buildings of a school, university, or college. The expressions ‘on‐campus’ and ‘off‐campus’ are used to indicate whether a location or event is situated on university premises or away from them respectively. Some institutions operate across a number of campuses, with students and teachers travelling between different sites. This is sometimes referred to as split‐site provision. The word ‘campus’ is the Latin for ‘field’, and seems to have been first used in its current sense in the United States.
