The University of Gloucestershire is proud to be a principal partner of Cheltenham Festivals, supporting the Literature Festival as well as the Jazz and Science Festivals over the past few years.
The University of Gloucestershire has been using its expertise to support and inspire students since 1847. Spread across three campuses in Cheltenham and Gloucester, it offers the best of city and countryside. With a broad range of subjects, cutting-edge facilities and outstanding support teams, students can benefit from the freedom to express themselves, the inspiration to push boundaries and an environment where they can reach their full potential.
A recent run of investment and development at the university has brought numerous benefits to students. These include new purpose-built business school facilities, including live trading room and moot court, and a large sports park featuring international standard arena and 3G pitches on the Oxstalls campus in Gloucester. Over in Cheltenham, a brand-new design centre at Park campus, a new engineering suite, and simulation crime scene facilities at Francis Close Hall have provided further contemporary learning spaces for students. Accommodation has also seen significant investment, with the opening of 800 bed Pittville Student Village in 2017 and 300 bed Blackfriars Residences in 2018.
The university has a long-standing focus on green issues and is the UK’s most sustainable university in the People & Planet league of universities’ environmental performance for 2019. It is also the only UK university to have ranked in the top ten in every year since the league began. There are allotments for students and diplomas in environmentalism, as well as sustainability research and development projects that bring together researchers from around the world, undertaking work for agencies such as Unesco.
