The best times at Bath, plus your latest events and updates

Posted in: Bath, Newsletter, On campus

"In the 1960s the city made us very welcome and soon the University scarf could be seen in all the pubs and bars”

What are your fondest memories of Bath? Recently, one of the University’s first graduates, John Connolly, shared his experiences of a one-building campus, favourite pubs and (lack of) photos in the days before selfies. You can read more via On Parade, the alumni blog.

Whether you loved taking part in societies, pulling shapes on the SU dancefloor or taking in the peace and quiet around the lake – in the 1970s, the 2010s or any time in between – we’d love to hear about it. You can share your memories with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, or by emailing
