The University of Gloucestershire has three campuses on four sites:

Before you travel to visit us make sure you know exactly what campus your chosen subject is on:

Park: Park campus is home to a range of accounting, law, business, management, computing, technology and media courses. (Please note accounting and business courses will be based at Oxstalls campus from September 2018).

Francis Close Hall (FCH): FCH is the university campus nearest to Cheltenham’s town centre. FCH is home to subjects such as art and design, education, health and social care, liberal arts and natural and social sciences. From September 2018 Business courses will be located at Oxstalls campus in Gloucester.

Oxstalls: Oxstalls campus is located in the heart of Gloucester, only five minutes' drive from the city centre. Oxstalls is where sports and exercise, nursing, performing arts, dance, drama, events management and hotel and resort management subjects are studied (accounting and business courses will also be taught at Oxstalls from September 2018).

The Centre for Fashion, Art and Photography: our Hardwick site is the Centre for Fashion, Art and Photography and is just a short walk from Francis Close Hall.
