Our main university campus is in High Wycombe, a charming English town, set in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside – yet conveniently close to London and all the excitement of the capital as well.
Located right in the town centre, the campus has excellent facilities, including a gym, dance and drama studios, production suites, and the impressive library, housed over four floors in our flagship building, The Gateway.
As a town, it’s a great place to live – with good shopping and restaurants, friendly local pubs, and a vibrant theatre. Several weekly town markets bring the community together and are a great place to pick up fresh local produce.
High Wycombe train station is just a ten-minute walk from campus. From here, you can reach the centre of London in just 30 minutes and reach other major cities, such as Oxford and Birmingham.
The M40 is a few minutes' drive from campus, allowing you to visit other beautiful towns by car.
You'll always have a safe night out in High Wycombe. The town has Purple Flag status, which means it's been recognised for its warm welcome, great mix of venues and safe travel.
You don’t have to go far if you’re at High Wycombe Campus. In fact, you needn’t go anywhere – The Venue , run by Bucks Students’ Union , always has something going on, and the SU bar serves food and cheap drinks.
For straightforward pub or restaurant vibes, there are plenty of student-friendly options in central Wycombe, and further afield in Marlow and Beaconsfield. Plus, there’s the Eden Cineworld cinema and Hollywood Bowl, and a wide range of restaurants for all tastes and budgets in the Eden centre .
Then there’s the heart of London, just a short train journey away, where the nightlife options are pretty much endless.
If you need a break from the books, you’ll find lots to keep you entertained at the Eden complex right next door. As well as many big name shops and a large choice of restaurants, you will also find a 12-screen cinema and a bowling alley.
For the ultimate shopping experience, jump on the train to Oxford Street to see some of the biggest and best shops London has to offer. Shopping options in The City are almost endless – with bustling markets, independent shops, plus all the big retail names, there for you to browse through and buy from, and just a short train ride away.
IIf you fancy something a little different, High Wycombe is also an easy train journey from Oxford’s historic covered market or Reading’s The Oracle shopping centre, both great shopping days out, depending on what you’re looking for.
Theatre lovers are well catered for as well. The Wycombe Swan Theatre is one of the leading theatres in the South East. When you've finished indulging in high-brow productions, you can have a giggle at one of the Town Hall's comedy nights.
In the Wycombe district, you'll find lots of attractive open spaces, such as the Rye and Hughenden Park. In the first you will have access to football pitches laid out on the grass, fishing and boating areas, and a leisure centre, among others. Hughenden Park is the largest park in the district and borders National Trust’s Hughenden Manor.
Close by, there are the delights of the river Thames at Marlow as well as the beautiful Chilterns countryside, which you can explore by walking or cycling.
