Accommodation

We know that finding somewhere you can call home is important, and the Bath Academy Team is happy to provide advice and guidance on the options available to our students. There is a range of residences available in Bath to suit individual preferences and budgets.

We believe that a comfortable, clean, and safe place to stay whilst students study is essential, therefore we aim to provide pleasant and secure accommodation for students to make the most of their time with us.

Our accommodation for long-term students consists of a charming, Georgian residential house set in the heart of the city. At Oxford house we offer full board accommodation for students who are 14+ years of age. Residence staff members are always present to ensure students’ safety, happiness and progress.

Oxford House has both single and shared rooms which are allocated on a strictly ‘first come, first served’ basis. The bedrooms are suitably furnished, centrally heated, and are cleaned each week, including new bed linen. All houses are non-smoking.

Location

Located within 10 minutes’ walk from the school and city centre, Bath Academy’s Student Residence offers classic accommodation in beautiful Grade 1 Listed Georgian buildings. Ideally positioned, students have the benefit of living in a historical house with modern amenities close to the city’s central hub.

Meals

Our experienced, in-house chef serves healthy, delicious, home-cooked meals for every dietary and cultural requirement, allowing our students to enjoy well-balanced and freshly prepared meals with a variety of options. Our chef will try their best to cater to special requirements with proper notice given, and we expect students to be flexible with their meal expectations. Trying new food and eating hot meals together in the evenings is an important aspect of student life and provides a ‘family’ environment for those far away from home.

Security

Our student residences are equipped with alarms and cameras on all entry and exit points to ensure our students’ safety at all times.

HOMESTAY ACCOMMODATION (AGES 16+)

Homestay

Bath Academy arranges accommodation in Bath with caring and responsible homestay providers. Living in homestay accommodation, students are able to learn more about British customs and traditions and gain additional conversational practice. Hosts treat the students as full members of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas. All homestays are visited personally and interviewed in order to ensure they satisfy our criteria:

  • Single room or shared rooms with an adequately sized bed (bunk beds may be used by students under 16 years old)
  • Not more than three students in one homestay at a time
  • Full board (breakfast, packed lunch & dinner with lunches provided by Bath Academy)
  • Located within the city of Bath (can be reached by walking or 30 minutes by public transport*)
  • Adequate hanging and drawer space and storage for clothes
  • A table or desk and chair for studying (either in the bedroom or in the main part of the house)
  • Daily access to a bathroom with a bath or shower
  • Room cleaned once a week
  • Bed linen and towel changed once a week
  • Laundry access once a week
  • Wi-Fi connection provided
  • English is spoken as the main language in the family home

*Bus passes currently cost around £20 per week for adults and £12.80 for young people under 21. More information can be found here.

PRIVATELY ARRANGED ACCOMMODATION

Private Student Halls of Residence

We recommend that students stay in accommodation provided by Bath Academy to gain the most from their experience in Bath. However, we understand that some students may prefer to arrange their own private accommodation. Please be aware that Bath Academy do not assist with arranging or organising private accommodation.

*Please note – The college does not monitor accommodation arranged privately.

For students aged 18+ there are private student halls of residence in Bath. These are a popular option because of the student community atmosphere, bills are usually included in the rent, and they provide independence in a safe, secure environment.

How It Works:

  • Your tenancy contract is not with Bath Academy, and any tenancy issues will be dealt with directly by the private arrangement you have signed up for.
  • Bath Academy cannot be your Guarantor.
