Bath Spa University Location
Finding your way to Bath Spa University
Bath Spa University is situated in the beautiful World Heritage City of Bath. The University’s main campuses in Bath, Newton Park and Sion Hill, are easy to reach by public transport or road. We also have a campus located in the pretty market town of Corsham, three miles west of Chippenham in Wiltshire.
We’ve recently acquired a new building on the East side of Bath on Locksbrook Road, and are currently refurbishing this Grade II listed property. Eventually this fantastic space will be used to teach our art and design students.
The University is committed to its environmental policy and encourages staff, students, and visitors to travel by public transport where possible.

How to get to Newton Park
Parking is available at our Newton Park campus however at busier times of the year sometimes our car park will become full. During these periods you may be directed to park in the overflow car park which is located on Lower Bristol Road. A shuttle bus runs regularly to Newton Park from this car park, Monday to Friday, 8.30am until 6:00pm.
If you are arriving mid-morning we would suggest checking the University’s parking Twitter account @BathSpaParking before you travel for updates on parking availability.
The University operates a pay and display system in its car parks. There is clear signage in all car parks, so please be aware of this before visiting.
Staff and students require a permit to park on campus. More information on permits is available on the Intranet.
