Postgraduate Summer School 2023


The University of Bath looks forward to welcoming you to the Claverton Down campus for the Postgraduate Summer School 2023.

We are delighted to be able to offer accommodation in Polden (which is located opposite the West car park). All bedrooms contains a small 4 foot wide double bed, en-suite shower facilities and come fully equipped with bedding, fresh towels and a high speed Wi-Fi connection. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in the kitchen.

Each bedroom can accommodate up to 2 people. The same charge is made whether the room is for one or two people, but we do need to have the names of all residents. If you would like to stay with a partner, please book the room in your name only (ie the name of the student attending Summer School) and then email the Guest Accommodation team ([email protected]) with the name of the other resident ahead of your arrival date. 

All rooms sold include a continental breakfast for each resident, which is served daily in Polden Cafe from 8am-9:30am.   

Rates for accommodation will be £63 per night (Sunday to Thursday) and £80 per night (Friday/Saturday only). Please note that the Sunday to Thursday rate includes a 10% student discount. However, discounts on rates are not available over the weekend.
