Bath Spa University Campus
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more inspiring backdrop for your studies. Our campuses are steeped in history, with beautiful period buildings and breath-taking settings. Beyond the aesthetics, you’ll find ultramodern technology and facilities.
There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. The parkland estate has everything you’d expect from a modern university, as well as a castle and a lake. All this and it’s only four miles from the buzz of central Bath.
At the busy heart of the campus is our ultra-modern academic building, Commons. Facilities include open-access, technology-enabled study space; social learning space; bookable group working rooms; a café; and outdoor amphitheatre.
“You are not going to find a more beautiful campus in the rest of the UK.”
Sam Lawton, BSc Psychology graduate
The campus also has the best specialist digital and studio resources for teaching in the South West – equal to anything found in top commercial organisations and broadcast companies.

You could take a walk around our lake. The campus has its very own nature reserve, woods, historic listed buildings, and rolling fields. The grounds were designed by the well-known landscape architect Capability Brown in the 18th century.
Sion Hill Campus
The Sion Hill campus is in the north of Bath, in the Lansdown district. This campus houses the Bath School of Art and Design and the majority of Art and Design courses are taught here. Its history extends to the original Bath School of Art which was founded in 1852. One of the earliest Masters of the school Anthony Carey Stannus, an Irish painter noted for marine scenes and who later helped establish a society which evolved into the Royal Ulster Academy. Until 2009, the University also owned the nearby Somerset Place. The sale of this listed Georgian crescent was intended to finance a new campus in the city centre. This development, alongside the Dyson School of Design Innovation, did not proceed due to planning issues relating to the chosen riverside site.
