Newton Park – Bath Spa University

Historic listed buildings, ultra-modern teaching facilities and rolling hills – we've got it all.

There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. It's steeped in history, and was designed by the well-known landscape architect Capability Brown in the 18th century.

At the 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.

It's home to the best specialist digital and studio resources for teaching in the South West – equal to anything found in top commercial organisations and broadcast companies.

“You are not going to find a more beautiful campus in the rest of the UK.”

Sam Lawton, BSc Psychology graduate
