Getting here

Travel advice and directions for getting to our guest accommodation

The city of Bath skyline

If you are travelling by car, you can park in the East Car Park, a short walk from reception.

You can park your car on campus for free, but will need to collect your free permit at check-in and clearly display it in your vehicle windscreen - failure to do so will incur a parking charge notice.

If you are using a sat-nav, use the postcode BA2 7PB. If you are using Google maps, follow this link.

If you are travelling by public transport, Bath is well served by trains from London, Wales and the South West, with regular buses between the city centre and the University. Bristol airport is just a few miles away.

Our commitment to protecting the environment

Holding an Exchange reusable cup

Our campus is surrounded by gorgeous Natural Trust land and scenery, and the city of Bath is a beautiful World Heritage location, so it will come as no surprise that we're passionate about caring for the environment.

Please bring any toiletries and tea/coffee you need for your stay. We have taken these items out of our rooms to reduce our plastic consumption and care for our environment. Our two campus shops sell a range of snacks, toiletries and stationery that you may need.

We also encourage campus visitors to bring a reusable coffee cup and water bottle. Our outlets offer reduced pricing when you refuse a single-use cup, and we have multiple drinking water taps across campus where you can refill your water bottle. Find out more about our sustainability initiatives here.

Each kitchen in our accommodation contains recycling bins for your rubbish. Please make sure you recycle your waste correctly when staying in our accommodation and help us keep our environment green and healthy.
