Meet friends, study, relax or treat yourself – all at our friendly, safe town centre campus.

Our town centre campus is centrally located in between the Guildhall Shopping Centre and Victoria Park; only a couple of minutes walk from the train and bus stations. Access to the campus can be found via the Riverbank entrance opposite Victoria Park or via our Science & Technology Centre entrance in Victoria Square*.

Our main campus and Palmbourne (just a few minutes walk from the main campus at Castle Street, ST16 2TB), offer fantastic facilities and a great environment for studying and meeting up with friends.  The latest addition to our campus estate is a brand new £3.5M Science and Technology Centre, the best learning envoronment of its type in the county, designed to inspire the next generation of innovators with state-of-the-art facilities and a LEGO® Education Innovation Studio.

In September 2017 we created brand new socialising spaces for students to use in their spare time at our Riverbank building including Costa Coffee and refurbished eating areas.  And as you're so close to the town centre you'll have access to high street shops and entertainment venues.

*Please note our Earl Street entrance has now closed.

Places to eat

Brand new socialising spaces!

In September 2017 we created brand new socialising spaces for students to use in their spare time at our Riverbank building...

Costa Coffee

If you love coffee, you'll love this new hot spot.  Our newly opened coffee lounge will serve freshly brewed Costa coffee so you can sip and surf or get together with your friends to catch up in between lessons.

Eating Areas

Our new look Hub will be open for breakfast and lunch daily, serving up a range of healthy (but tasty!) meals for students. 

For something more special, our AA Rosette winning Riverbank Restaurant is really popular and open to the wider public.

Open to the community

As well as industry standard teaching and learning facilities and a state of the art library resource, all our students – whether full-time, part-time or an apprentice, can take advantage of other great facilities, which are also open to the public at amazing prices.

And much more… our facilities are open to everyone.

Faith Room

Supported by the college chaplaincy team, our multi-faith facility for members of the college community to pray, reflect, or simply to sit quietly for a few moments to find peace.
