More about the INTO Centre

A rich heritage and bright future

The University has three campuses serving different schools of study, and each has a unique feel. The Park Campus is home to the INTO Centre. It’s a former botanical garden - we did say it was a beautiful part of the country.

Park Campus

Located in the south of Cheltenham, Park Campus is an idyllic learning environment. The town centre and all its amenities are a 15-minute walk. Set in 24 acres of landscaped grounds, gardens and playing fields. But, there’s more than just a pretty view. Facilities on campus include a refectory, launderette, tennis courts, Students’ Union café bar, medical centre and learning resource centre.

Francis Close Hall

The closest campus to Cheltenham town centre and just a short walk away from shops, restaurants and the rest of the town’s facilities. Francis Close Hall dates back to 1847 and has been beautifully maintained. Here you’ll find state-of-the-art laboratories, halls of residence, refectory, Students’ Union café bar, chapel and community gardens.

Oxstalls Campus

A five-minute drive from Gloucester city centre, this modern campus opened in 2002. Oxstalls has a reputation for its friendly and sociable atmosphere, where students and staff mix together. You’re in the heart of Gloucester here. Facilities include a sports hall, learning resource centre, Students Union café bar, laboratory facilities and student accommodation.

Your Students’ Union (SU) is the heart of socialising during your university study. You’ll find all the events, clubs and societies you’ll want to get involved with. The SU is a charity that represents all its members and can speak on your behalf. From volunteering opportunities and societies to bars and social spaces, there's a lot to get involved with.
