The Bedford campus is close to Bedford town centre and local amenities. It boasts our Gateway building, a three-storey building that offers a number of high-quality teaching spaces, informal learning spaces, lecture theatres, a new student services centre and boardroom facilities.
There’s also a 280-seat professional theatre and dance studios on campus, to aid the learning of our Performing Arts students and a Physical Education and Sport Science Centre, which was used to train athletes in the 2012 Olympics, and provides access to the latest sport and exercise science technology.
Bedford is a riverside town with a mixture of lively traditional pubs and restaurants, shops and first-class sports facilities. The Corn Exchange in the town centre shows regular music and comedy gigs, plus there’s museums, landscaped parks, and a cinema.
