Postgraduate Summer School 2024

Postgraduate Summer School 2024


The University of Bath looks forward to welcoming you to the Claverton Down campus for the Postgraduate Summer School 2024.

We are delighted to be able to offer accommodation in Polden (which is located opposite the West car park. Please note that Polden is a separate building from Polden Court, which is next door). All bedrooms contain a small 4-foot-wide double bed, en-suite shower facilities and come fully equipped with bedding, towels and a high speed Wi-Fi connection. Tea and coffee making facilities (but not crockery or cutlery) are available in each bedroom.

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 (i.e. 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 (including partners staying in your bedroom) and is served daily in Polden Cafe from 8am-9:30am.   

Please note that accommodation will only be available to book online using this online store until 28 May 2024. Limited accommodation is available, so please ensure that you book before this deadline to avoid any disappointment. 

After this date, please book here. Accommodation booked after 28 May may still be in Polden, though this cannot be guranteed, will be subject to availability, and may not be with other Summer School students. 

Rates for accommodation will be £66.60 per night (Sunday to Thursday) and £85 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 on Friday and Saturday nights. 

In order to select multiple dates, please manually add individual dates to your basket one at a time. Once you have selected all your prefered dates, please proceed to the check out.
