Hartpury offers a range of accommodation and most postgraduate students choose to live off campus in the beautiful village of Hartpury and surrounding areas, in Gloucester city centre or the nearby town of Cheltenham Spa.
As postgraduate teaching can include weekend block delivery, some students choose to stay in local bed and breakfasts and other local accommodation options.
Students benefit from access to some of the most advanced facilities in the world at an educational institution, on a campus that’s received over £50 million investment in the last 10 years. Home to nine specialist businesses, it provides the ideal professional learning environment for you to absorb yourself in postgraduate study.
From world-renowned rider performance and canine therapy centres, to an anti-gravity treadmill and high-altitude hypoxic chamber, as well as amateur and elite athletes competing across our 10 performance Sports Academies, you’ll have everything you need to help you get ahead.
You’ll also find over 70 domestic and non-domestic species on campus, a commercial livestock and arable farm, and a busy events calendar including three international equestrian events each year.
Hartpury is the only educational institution in the UK with its own Championship rugby team – Hartpury RFC – and Gloucester Rugby is based on campus. Hartpury also supports Olympic equestrian champions to prepare for competition. Students can get involved with these projects too.
