A multi-campus university

There are three campuses: two are located in Cheltenham (Francis Close Hall and The Park) and a third is in Gloucester (Oxstalls). Each campus is very different in terms of look and feel, and which campus you study on will depend on your choice of course. A bus service between campuses and town centres will help you to get about.

Park Campus

A former botanical garden located in the south of Cheltenham, Park campus offers students an idyllic learning environment. The lively and cosmopolitan town centre is a 15-minute walk away, meaning you have access to numerous shops, banks, restaurants, bars and cafes.

Set in 24 acres of landscaped grounds and gardens, facilities include a refectory, launderette, playing fields and tennis courts, Students’ Union cafe bar, medical centre and learning resource centre.

Francis Close Hall

Francis Close Hall campus is the closest to Cheltenham’s town centre and is just a short walk away from shops, restaurants and other facilities. Continuous investment since 1847 means that Francis Close Hall offers modern facilities in an old-world environment.

The beautifully maintained campus includes facilities such as state-of-the-art laboratories, halls of residence, refectory, Students’ Union cafe bar, chapel and community gardens.

Oxstalls Campus

Located in the heart of Gloucester, our award winning Oxstalls campus is only a five-minute drive away from the city centre. This modern campus opened in 2002 and has quickly gained a reputation for its friendly and sociable atmosphere where students and staff mix together. Facilities include sports hall, learning resource centre, Students’ Union, cafe bar, laboratory facilities and student accommodation.
