About the institution

The University of Gloucestershire has three campuses. Francis Close Hall campus and Park campus are a short walk from Cheltenham city centre, and Oxstalls campus is near the centre of Gloucester. Francis Close Hall is known as the ‘Hogwarts campus’ because of its historic buildings. One reason for Gloucestershire’s popularity among students is the large number of festivals held there throughout the year. Some of these are supported by the university and many students are able to work or volunteer for them.
