It is also home to the York Science Park and the National Science Learning Centre. In 2007, the university received approval to extend its main campus onto arable land east of the village of Heslington, resulting in the creation of Campus East.

In 2012, York University became a member of the Russell Group, an association of research-intensive British universities.
