Student Accommodation in Gloucester

Written by Sam | January 12, 2021

Gloucester has two universities, the University of Gloucester and Royal Agricultural University (RGU). Gloucester is a great place to study, it’s just under Worcester and above Bristol. It has some great links to Wales where you can get into the natural world if you would like a break! Even though RGU is classed as in Gloucester, all the housing and accommodation for RGU is actually in Cirencester and you don’t want to live in Gloucester if you are going to RGU. The University of Gloucester has three campuses, Cheltenham, Hartpury and Oxstalls.

Gloucester has around 8,000 students, as a university, this means it is relatively small compared to other universities but it has some great specialties.
