About University of Bath

The University of Bath received its Royal Charter in 1966 and is now firmly established as a top ten UK university with a reputation for research and teaching excellence.

Our campus, overlooking the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, has a vibrant research culture driven by the enthusiasm and invention of our academic community.

Students are attracted by our excellent academic reputation, our outstanding graduate employmentrecord, our world-class sports facilities, and the wide array of other social, recreational and personal development opportunities we offer.

Our ability to offer placement options across our discipline base, and with leading organisations, is unique among UK research-intensive universities.

We are sector leaders in the commercial exploitation of intellectual property (IP) and the establishment of international links for exploitation of IP.


Our campus is located on Claverton Down, which sits on the south-east hilltop edge of the city of Bath. The campus is designed around a central pedestrian thoroughfare, known as the Parade.

We offer excellent facilities for teaching, accommodation and leisure on campus and we are continually improving current spaces and investing in new buildings.

In 2012 we began a three-year campus improvement project to provide new teaching space, student accommodation and a new space for the arts.

Facilities on campus
  • At the centre of the Parade is the Library which is open 24 hours a day all year round and offers computing services, information and research assistance as well as books and journals.
  • The world-class Sports Training Village is home to a number of elite athletes and our sports performance centre. It is also open to staff, students and the local community who can take advantage of the outstanding facilities.
  • On the eastern side of campus is The Edge, home to the ICIA and School of Management, which has a vibrant programme of visual arts, theatre, dance and music. The new Centre for the Arts provides the ICIA and our surrounding area with an exciting new arts venue.

For several years we have received recognition for the outstanding beauty of our campus grounds with awards from Bath in Bloom.
