Looking after your Mental Health and Wellbeing


We know that the pandemic has been difficult for many students. We have lots of support for students once at Bath and you can find out about some of them here. There are also some resources you can use to monitor and support your own mental health and wellbeing before you arrive.

Where you'll live


Most of your day-to-day learning will happen at the Claverton campus (the main site of the University), you can explore where you will be spending most of your time through a campus tour or exploring our 360 campus. Many students will choose to live in University accommodation in their first year and you have probably already made your selections of which accommodation you would like. Find out more about the facilities you'll have on campus below
