Our location

Beyond the stunning parkland, lakes and woodland of the College grounds you’ll find an unspoilt landscape of farmland, ancient villages and delightful scenery stretching as far as the eye can see. The larger town of Biggleswade and its shops, supermarkets and rail link to London is just 10 minutes away by car.

If you live at a distance you can benefit from our travel scheme, or you might like to consider staying in our Halls of Residence – often our students are so happy living on site that they don’t want to leave!
