Welcome pages – Bath Spa University

Welcome

We're here to help you settle in!

We're delighted to welcome you to the Bath Spa community. This is the start of a new adventure and we're here to guide you through it. These pages include tips on getting started and useful information to read before you arrive.

Vice-Chancellor professor Sue Rigby at Locksbrook CampusI want to welcome you to Bath Spa, and to this section of the website, which is designed to help you get settled, answer some of your questions, and point you in the direction of the teams and resources that can help you. 

A university is the sum of its students and staff, and so much more – it is a community of learners and a place to grow. Your talent and skills make Bath Spa University what it is, and ensuring that you flourish is vitally important to all of us – your tutors and professional services teams alike – who work to support you at Bath Spa.

We offer a toolkit for the unknown, and a way to thrive in your professional life. Each new academic year is the start of a new journey; this is where you begin that journey with us.

Professor Sue Rigby
Vice-Chancellor
