Kingston upon Hull North (usually just Hull North) is a borough constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election.

Boundaries

This constituency covers the northern part of Hull. A diverse constituency, it includes the large social housing estates of Bransholme, North Hull and Orchard Park, as well as some of the city's most desirable housing areas in the Avenues, Newland Park and Beverley High Road areas. A seat with a large student population, Hull North has the University at its centre, and many students live in the Newland Avenue and Beverley Road communities. A large new housing development in the north of the seat called Kingswood is also rapidly changing the constituency's demographic profile.

Kingston upon Hull North includes the Hull City Council wards of Avenue, Beverley, Bransholme East, Bransholme West, Bricknell, Kings Park, Newland, Orchard Park and Greenwood and University.

With the Conservatives in a distant third place, and the Lib Dems clearly established as the challengers to Labour, Hull North is likely to be a key marginal seat between the Lib Dems and Labour at the next General Election. In May 2008 the Hull Daily Mail's political editor commented that "A knife-edge battle between Labour and the Lib Dems in Hull North now looks almost certain".
