Students will live in campus housing on the Newton Park Campus of Bath Spa University. The residence hall consists of suites with single bedrooms, shared bathrooms, a shared kitchen, and a communal area for 12 students. Note that each student will receive a linen pack (sheets, towel, pillow, comforter), however students may also shop for room items once they arrive in England. Also note that each suite kitchen will have plates and pots/pans and BSU will have one week of groceries stocked in the kitchen, so students will have several days before they need to shop for meals.
A meal plan of one meal per day in the campus cafeteria is included, and students will be responsible for their other meals (using the residence hall suite kitchen or purchased on campus). There are several places on campus to buy meals and groceries, such as The Refectory, East Wing Coffee, Commons Café, and the Students Union. The program professor and advisor will reside in Bath and have offices on the BSU campus for regular advising meetings with the students and classes.
