Locksbrook Campus – Bath Spa University

Our state-of-the-art Locksbrook Campus is truly stunning.

Located next to the River Avon in Bath city centre, the open-plan building has technical workshops surrounded by open, flexible studio spaces, as well as large, open social areas. An amazingly inspirational place for you to flourish.

Locksbrook Campus is in a central location in the city, and is virtually next door to Bath Spa student accommodation on the Lower Bristol Road, reached via a pedestrian bridge across the River. The riverside cycle path connecting our Newton Park campus to Bath’s railway and bus stations also borders the site, making it easily accessible from further afield.

Locksbrook has received both a RIBA South West Award and RIBA National Award, recognising and celebrating what an amazingly inspirational space it is to come together to design, make, do, create and learn in.
