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.
Need a study break?
You could take a walk around our lake. The campus has its very own woods, historic listed buildings, and rolling fields. The grounds were designed by the well-known landscape architect Capability Brown in the 18th century.
Sound too good to be true? Come and visit us, we’d love to show you around.
Our state-of-the-art Commons building sits alongside our award-winning University Theatre and purpose-built concert hall, the Michael Tippett centre. In addition the historic buildings on campus are also used for teaching. You might find yourself studying in our 14th century castle tower, a scheduled ancient monument.
Over 850 students live on our Newton Park campus in single, shared and en-suite study bedrooms. They benefit from great facilities, beautiful surroundings and busy social lives. Living on campus means it’s all within easy reach.
Newton Park has a great range of food and dining facilities, so you’re sure to find something to your taste. Between Newton Park’s four dining areas and cafes, you’ll find barista style drinks; bright and social eating areas; seasonal menus; and food to grab when you’re on the go.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is in operation at Newton Park Campus, and you’ll need to buy a pay and display ticket to avoid a parking charge notice. There’s a 30-minute grace period to allow you to pick up and drop off.
