Bath Spa University began a major building programme in 2012 which will provide state-of- the-art teaching and learning facilities for students at our Newton Park campus.
The second phase of the campus development has been the building of the new student accommodation situated at the very top of the Newton Park campus. Building work on this development will begin in the summer of 2013 and is due to be completed by September 2014.
Plans are also being made to refurbish the Students’ Union building at the top of the campus. The aim is for this work to be completed by September 2014, in time for students moving into the new accommodation. Various landscaping projects will also be undertaken alongside the building works to further improve the campus.
