About ahs

We look after the Accommodation, Hospitality and Security teams at the University of Bath, employing over 400 staff that work hard to deliver an excellent experience to all of our customers.

Our customers can be students, staff and external visitors, across University accommodation, shops, restaurants and bars on campus.

We have eight hospitality outlets on campus ranging from cafés to a fine dining restaurant, as well as a full conference and banqueting service, and two small supermarkets.

Our accommodation houses over 4,000 students throughout the academic year.

During the summer months, we operate a bit like a hotel, with external guests and companies using our accommodation for conferences, summer camps and away days.

ahs and the University of Bath

A first choice destination with a real community feel

The University is a first choice destination for many students, who are attracted by our excellent campus facilities (including ahs’s accommodation and hospitality outlets), superior academic reputation, outstanding graduate employment record, world-class sports facilities and the other social, recreational and personal development opportunities on offer.

Our staff are vital in creating the University’s vibrant and innovative academic community. We really value working collaboratively with others within our global network of contacts in business, the professions, the public and voluntary sectors.

Our campus overlooks the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath and offers a real community feel for staff and students, as well as providing a friendly and safe environment in which to work.
