“Set in 400 acres of Hampshire countryside, only three miles from Winchester and a short drive to the beach, Sparsholt combines the buzz and social life of the city, with the tranquillity of the countryside and coastline.”


Whether you live onsite or travel in daily, there’s always something going on to get involved in.

Campus Events

Our team organise a wide range of social events and activities throughout the year for both residential and non-residential students, including:

  • Freshers’ Party
  • Christmas Ball
  • Summer Balls
  • And many other charity events such as karaoke, foam parties, bar bingo, quizzes, pool or darts competitions, there’s plenty of activities to enjoy with your friends. 

On-site facilities

With our onsite Sports Centre, complete with a 8.4 mete high climbing wall there’s lots of sport to get stuck into. Regular classes take place on-site including Zumba to basketball, badminton to football, there’s something for everyone. Keep fit in our fully equipped gym or join us off site to try skiing and snowboarding.

All this studying and exercising is thirsty work which makes Fit Jyms Bar the perfect place to hang out. With soft drinks and alcohol (strictly over 18s) you can grab a bite to eat too. Alternatively, head to Bytes for breakfast, lunch and dinner and enjoy daytime snacks at MJs.


From a lift to the super market, to late night collections from Winchester, our residential team are always on hand to ensure our students are always safe and well looked after.
