Sal­is­bury Campus

Locat­ed on the out­skirts of his­toric Sal­is­bury, the College’s Sal­is­bury cam­pus offers a wide range of voca­tion­al and cre­ative cours­es from entry lev­el through to degrees val­i­dat­ed by some of the UK’s top universities.

The cam­pus is cur­rent­ly under­go­ing a £14million rede­vel­op­ment to refresh a large pro­por­tion of its teach­ing facil­i­ties and has already seen a suite of labs com­plet­ed to facil­i­tate excit­ing new cours­es in the Life Sciences.


The devel­op­ment at our Sal­is­bury cam­pus was made pos­si­ble by over £24m of invest­ment into our Sal­is­bury and Lack­ham cam­pus­es, secured by the Swin­don & Wilt­shire Local Enter­prise Part­ner­ship (SWLEP). More than £14million is being spent on refur­bish­ing a new build­ing and trans­form­ing the whole cam­pus. Work start­ed on re-cladding the exte­ri­or of the cam­pus in Novem­ber 2018, and in June 2019 build­ing works com­menced to replace the Bourne build­ing at the heart of the campus.
