Be a part of an exciting chapter in the history of the Royal Agricultural University.

RAU Swindon is situated in a purpose converted workshop in the railway heritage quarter of Swindon. This £1.35m investment provides modern and fully accessible facilities in an innovative learning space calculated to encourage collaboration and interdisciplinary studies. Designed by award winning architects Metropolitan Workshop and with the generous support of Swindon Borough Council the project is a case study in sustainable, heritage-led, regeneration.

Centrally placed for easy access by rail (we are five minute walk from the railway station) and road you should be able to reach us easily.
