Many of our students purchase a First bus pass to get around.

If you've ordered a bus pass in advance via online registration you can collect it during enrolment at Newton Park from the following locations:

  • Registration Weekend – main enrolment room, Commons
  • Welcome Week – Room G10 in Main House
  • After Welcome Week – Main House Reception

You'll be able to book and buy your bus pass over enrolment weekend at Newton Park. Head to the open learning area outside the main enrolment room in Commons where staff will be able to help you.

Santander Bank

Bath Spa University has a partnership with Santander and we have a branch on our Newton Park campus.  During online registration, new students (who are eligible to apply for an account) will be invited to open a Santander bank account. If you wish to find out more about setting up a bank account with them, you can do this at their stand in Commons during Registration Weekend.

Medical Service

There is a doctors’ clinic which runs regular surgeries at Newton Park. You can register with the doctor during registration weekend in Commons. If you are living off-campus, you may wish to register at one of the clinics nearer to your accommodation. The Doctor Registration stand will be able to advise you if you need any guidance on this.

Bath Spa Live

The University excels in performing arts and there are many events taking place across the year which are organised by Bath Spa Live. You can find out more about scheduled events from their stand in the Commons Atrium.

Students’ Union

The SU will be open for most of the weekend, and there will be various events going on. Representatives from the Students’ Union will also be available to talk to in Commons where you can find out more about the services provided by the SU.

IT Helpdesk

As a registered student, you'll be able to access the campus wifi using your student number + and password. If you have any issues accessing the wifi, or any other technical issues, you can go to the IT Helpdesk in Commons where someone will be able to help. You can also read our Guidelines for Personal Computing Devices.


If you have any queries about student finance/fees there will be members of the finance team available to talk to in the online registration room in Commons (CM124).

Travelling to Bath Spa University

If you're travelling via the M4 to the Newton Park and Sion Hill campuses, and student accommodation in Bath, we recommend you take junction 19 southbound of the M4 and proceed to the University via the A4174 and A4. Please note that driving through Bath via the A46 is a very busy route; if you take it expect to experience delays.
