Accommodation

At Hartpury you could choose to live on campus surrounded by Gloucestershire’s beautiful countryside or off campus in the heart of Gloucester City centre. Whichever option you go for, you’ll get the best of both rural and urban worlds.

We’re located just five miles from Gloucester City centre, with buses that come right on to campus. First year undergraduate students who have made us as their firm UCAS choice by the May deadline, as well as first-year undergraduate international students, have priority on Hartpury-managed accommodation. Students living within a 10 mile radius of the campus are not eligible for student accommodation in the first instance.

Living on campus

The Hartpury community is vibrant and friendly. You’re sure to feel at home with us. Your neighbours will include your friends, as well as over 90 animal species, 200 horses and the Gloucester rugby team! You really will be living alongside your passion. On campus facilities include a student bar, wifi, laundry rooms, gym and sports facilities, as well as cafes and restaurants. Gloucester City is a 10-minute car or bus ride away so you can enjoy the buzz of city life, day and night, whenever you fancy it.

Hartpury House

This includes 21 en suite bedrooms available on a wing of our Grade II listed historic manor.

Alongside living in our first stunning Hartpury building that dates back to the 1940s, you’ll be at the centre of our campus, next to onsite facilities and your classes. While these halls are catered with meal packages available for purchase, there is a shared common room with a microwave, fridge and kettle, so you can enjoy snacks and hot drinks when you want.

Living off campus

Make the most of our campus’s close proximity to the ninth fastest growing city in the UK* and live at the heart of the party. Full of social hangout spots, Gloucester has a real vibe for those seeking that independent living experience. Gloucester Quays, with its impressive waterside location, is a hub for leisure activities, eateries and outlet shopping. Alongside Gloucestershire’s vast countryside and regular buses from Gloucester to Hartpury, you really do have the best of both worlds.
