LIFE AT HARTPURY
Student life on campus
The campus offers buzzing cafes and bars as well as tranquillity for time out when you need it. Whether you want to grab a quick coffee, lunch between lectures or a late night drink or snack, you’ll find everything you need on site, from our very own Costa Coffee bar ‘Red & Black’ to restaurants and Legends Bar.
Our events team runs exciting activities throughout the year including pub quizzes, movie nights and theme nights to live music and top DJs. We’ve hosted the likes of Chase & Status, Wretch 32, Katie B and Labrinth – who played at 2016 Summer Ball.
And Hartpury’s own Students’ Union ensures there’s a wide range of clubs, recreational sport, activities and entertainment on offer all year round. If you’re interested in starting your own club or society, just let us know!
Student life in Gloucestershire
With a lively nightlife, over 45 music and arts festivals each year, big sports events, Cheltenham Gold Cup horse races, and a whole host of outdoor adventure activities, it’s no wonder Gloucestershire is the top choice of so many students.
You’ll never be short of something to do as the area offers something to suit all passions. From the miles of great outdoors to cafes, snack bars and restaurants to boutique and budget shopping, there's something to suit every mood.
And with the nightlife and shopping of Cheltenham and Gloucester on your doorstep and shuttle buses in and out of the city and town centres, life at Hartpury is never dull!
With the Hartpury campus being out in the countryside, I was a bit worried about whether there would be a good social scene here. I needn’t have worried though! There are always taxis going to and from the campus and you can always count on Gloucester being full of Hartpury students on nights out, especially for the student nights. There’s lots happening on campus too. The pub quizzes in Hartpury’s Legends Bar are always popular and a really good laugh.
