Epsom is a market town with close links to London in one direction, and the breathtaking Surrey Hills in the other. As well as having a vibrant high street and plenty of nightlife, it’s also close to two of the UK’s top theme parks – Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures – for a fun day out.
Our Epsom campus
UCA Epsom is a modern, airy and close-knit campus with specialisms in fashion and graphic design and is also the home of the university’s unique Business School for the Creative Industries, where you can develop creative business skills in everything from fashion promotion to advertising, events and festival management.
The Royal School of Needlework, where our specialist BA (Hons) Hand Embroidery course runs, is also close by, and students here can access UCA Epsom accommodation.
There’s a wide variety of accommodation on offer at Epsom. All the flats are self-catered with shared communal spaces and are spread over four separate blocks surrounding the campus, so you’ll only ever be ten minutes’ walk away from class.
