Your city, your campus

A powerhouse of creativity, City Campus is dedicated to our creative and cultural industries courses. Spread across four unique sites, this campus takes you from the green hills of the Ashton Court estate and deer park to the iconic Bristol harbourside in the heart of the city.

Identified as a UK creative hotspot, you’ll hone your craft in inspirational venues across Bristol, including two international contemporary art centres, Arnolfini and Spike Island.

Our partnerships underpin the learning experiences of our creative community, providing spaces where students, staff and professionals can share ideas and develop their talents.
