The campus

The University’s purpose built campus is set in attractive rural grounds overlooking the historic city of Bath. The campus has all the local amenities you could ask for including library, shops, banks and a post office.

In the last decade, we have invested over £450 million in our campus. This includes new accommodation, academic buildings and sport facilities such as a Olympic legacy swimming pool and a newly-opened gym and fitness centre expanded across three floors.


Bath city

The city

Bath is a cosmopolitan city with a rich cultural heritage and is only one of three cities in the world to be included on UNESCO’s world heritage list.

Small enough to explore on foot, you can discover its beautiful stone buildings and the natural hot springs which gave the city its name. Indulge yourself in year-round arts festivals, museums, galleries and the spa and get involved with the local community with our great volunteering opportunities.



International students

The University boasts a vibrant international student community. Over 100 nationalities are represented among our 3,500 international students.

We know that moving to a new country and experiencing a different culture can be challenging. Here at Bath our International Student Advice Team can help to settle you in, including an international orientation programme and mentoring scheme to help students relax into life in the UK.

University of Bath alumni can be found occupying positions of influence in many countries and we seek to continue our association with former students long after they have graduated.
