Student Accommodation in Bath

Anyone on the lookout for student accommodation in Bath will not be short for options, with a number of popular areas to choose from. Bath is a great city to begin life as a student, located in Somerset, Bath welcomes over 300,000 visitors every year from all parts of the world, and with two highly performing universities, it’s no surprise Bath is packed full of international students looking to study!

With two universities Bath becomes home to around 21,000 students every year and although the two are on opposite sides of the city, there’s still plenty of good spaces for everyone! 

The city is full of historical architecture and attractions such as Pulteney Bridge that sits on the River Avon. Bath received World Heritage Site status in 1987, as a result of being home to 18th Century Architecture, Roman remains, natural hot springs and a stunning landscape setting. The hot springs and Roman baths are a huge tourist attraction in Bath, with the city's famous Thermae Spa being Britain's only natural thermal spa. 

Bath is graced with stunning 18th century Georgian houses across the city, many of which have now been renovated into large student properties. The student homes in Bath come in a range of sizes, with larger detached homes for group sizes of 8-9 people, three storey Georgian style terraced houses for groups of 3-4 housemates, as well as double bedroomed student apartments, for those wanting to live alone or with a partner. 

Student accommodation in Bath is spread across the various areas of the city, all of which have their own individual qualities depending on what kind of student home you’re looking for. Oldfield Park and Bathwick are both within walking distance from the city centre and are much closer to the action when it comes to students from the Bath university.
 
If you want to be on the campus doorstep, Widcombe sits just beside the university for anyone who wants a short walk into morning lectures, whilst it still has good links into the city for the brilliant bath, bar crawls. 

For students choosing Bath Spa University to study, the most popular and convenient place to live is Oldfield Park due to its direct bus routes to the campuses, which is a great choice thanks to all of the local amenities, bus and train services and nightlife situated in the area. 

Being a Student in Bath

Bath has two excellent universities for both post and undergraduate students, located at opposite sides of the city, the student areas that sit between them are a popular choice for students of both. 

The University of Bath is understandably a popular place of study, due to its high standard of teaching which lead to the university being awarded the Royal Charter in 1966, whilst currently holding the TEF Gold Award. The university is also known for its £35m sporting facilities, where international competitions, such as the tennis Fed Cup, are held. 

The universities, thriving nightlife and heritage draw in over 21,000 students to the city and for culture vultures, there’s plenty to indulge in - from museums, art galleries and theatres to the infamous Roman baths, narrowboat trips and surrounding national parks.

For festival lovers, Bath is an absolute hot spot. Home to the famous Bath Festival and with just a short train ride to Bristol and Brighton, getting along to either Glastonbury or Brighton’s Pride is easy, (if you manage to get tickets that is).

A big night out closer to home is also on the cards, with student union events at each university, student clubs such as Po Na Na and one of the UK's best live music venues, Moles.
