The campus is absolutely gorgeous! A wonderful mix of old and new, castles and modern buildings. Reserving rooms encourages students to get out of their rooms and study anywhere on campus, from the top of the castle tower, to the communal "pods" at Commons. The Student Union building has a bar and a small shop, and activities going on almost every day. Karaoke every other Saturday is one of my favourites. Close enough to the city of Bath for easy access, while still having the feeling of a university town. Lots of student discounts and student bars/clubs in town, as the University of Bath is also nearby. Interesting classes, lovely lecturers and guest lecturers, and proper assessments. Few, if not none, tests, allowing for those who do not thrive with simple memorization to show off how they learn. The diversity of students encourages the broadening of your own world view. A wide range of courses, allowing for study into incredibly specific topics. The main issue with the university is the wait time for wellbeing appointments, as it can take up to four months to even get a foot in the door. This means that if you do need help, it is very difficult to achieve. Also, while it isn't the university's fault, it is important to know that the First Bus system is not very reliable, so if you have a job in town, it is quite nerve-wracking.

The uni has a good students union and facilities, there aren’t a great amount of societies but the location is great with some nice views of the countryside.

There is a nice relaxed atmosphere at the uni and the setting is beautiful. The university itself has been unsupportive and unresponsive to mental health needs and there is a definite lack of support here. I really don't like how the Newton St Loe campus has more grounds than they know what to do with so they decided to put hundreds of parking spaces that are always empty - too many than is needed and charge everyone to be there!! Simply profiteering..ridiculous and greedy. Would understand if space was at a premium, just out to make money off their students and visitors.

Location and facilities are really good and appealing for the university. Locksbrook campus is too open and has No space for studying. Too hard to focus due to noisey echo of campus and lack Of chairs for people. Looks good though

The location and the campus itself is beautiful but the student support is still lacking slightly. I think covid has delayed some improvements in the terms of teaching but a good uni overall.

Bath Spa University is a great place for students with a learning disability. I have a disability called an Auditory Processing Disorder, where my ears and brain do not fully coordinate with each other. Because of it, I have had people walk away from me due to miscommunications. But with my professors and classmates, they are very understanding and patient with me. I was given a hearing amplifier, which allowed me to process the teacher’s words, including my peers. The only issue I would have with the school is the dorm life. There can be a bit of noise in the residence hall, but that can be taken care of by speaking with the accommodation team. Overall, Bath Spa University is the best environment for students with a learning disability. I enjoy my classes and being able to interact with others.
