Francis Close Hall

Franci Close Hall campus

From training the next generation of teachers and carers, to campaigning for the future of our society and environment, the students of Francis Close Hall have a lot to be proud of.

Home to:

Humanities, natural and social sciences, education and public services, art and design

With us from the very beginning, Francis Close Hall has seen our legacy grow from strength to strength throughout our nearly 170 years in education.

Just a short walk away from Cheltenham town centre, you’ll have everything you need right on your door step, with easy access to Cheltenham’s lively bars, clubs, specialist shops and cafes.

Investments to the campus

Alongside a number of improvements to our study spaces and facilities we’ve also recently developed the onsite design studios for our designers and architects. The fully equipped laboratory space for our biosciences students has been refurbished too.

We’ve also got some exciting plans to build a student village 10 minutes away from Francis Close Hall campus.
