Guided Campus Tours

Newton Park Campus (not applicable to Art and Design students)

This is an opportunity to visit the campus on a normal ‘working day’. Student Ambassadors will lead tours of the campus/accommodation and Support Staff will be available for questions.

For a more informal look around Bath Spa University we hold regular Campus Tours at our Newton Park site. Visitors will be given the opportunity to have a guided tour of the campus and accommodation (both on and off-site). Although academic staff are not present during this event, we will have representatives from Student Housing, Employability and Student Services. Our Student Ambassadors, who will be conducting the tours, represent a selection of subjects offered and because they are all current students, they are in the best position to give you a real insight into what studying at Bath Spa University is really like.

Information will be sent via email one week prior to the event taking place. For planning purposes the event runs from 11:00h-13:00h.

Sion Hill Campus (for students interested in Art and Design subjects)

Bath School of Art and Design, primarily based at Sion Hill, hosts a wide variety of specialist facilities. If you are unable to attend one of our Open Days and would like to arrange an independent visit please e-mail opendays@bathspa.ac.uk.
