About Us » About Our Campuses
This is where most of you will attend your classes. It's a large site so be prepared for the hustle and bustle! You will mix with a wide range of students studying courses ranging from electrical engineering to furniture design to professional catering. This campus benefits from being close to Bridgend Town Centre, Recreation Centre and other local amenities.
Sport, Public Services and Land-based Studies (Animal Care, Countryside, Equine and Horticulture) are based at our Pencoed campus. Our Construction courses are also now based at this campus, within our new Construction Academy which opened in January 2010. This campus benefits from lots of open space and greenery, including a nine hole golf course, paddocks, rugby and football pitches.
This campus is situated on Bridgend Industrial Estate and is home to our Higher Education Centre. This ensures that students undertaking a higher education course benefit from studying alongside other mature students. The Centre for New Media Enterprise is also situated at this site, which allows media and photography students to enjoy industry standard resources
Maesteg Campus is conveniently located at the heart of Maesteg's town centre on Castle Street and within easy reach of all local amenities. The interior of our building consists of extensive classroom facilities, a drop-in IT centre, a visitors' centre and break area with vending services. Every effort has been made to provide a friendly environment which meets the needs of all individuals in the local community.
The Pyle-based centre is a joint initiative with Bridgend County Borough Council and provides learning opportunities for students who might otherwise have struggled to make a successful transition at 16 years old. The studio 34 programme provides a curriculum mix, combining a range of educational activities which allow students to develop academic and vocational skills.
Morien House is the location for Engage Training, which is the business focused and externally facing directorate of Bridgend College. The decision to locate Engage Training on Bridgend Industrial Estate is both strategic and practical. The move allows Engage Training to be closer to the business community and respond to the increased demand for work based training.

At our Arts Academy on Pennarth Road in Cardiff, Bridgend College delivers the level 3/4 Cardiff Foundation Diploma in Art & Design. The grade 1 School of Creative Arts at Bridgend College has taught the Foundation Diploma in Art & Design for many years, and due to their reputation for high quality teaching and learner support, were recently approached by Cardiff Metropolitan University (UWIC) to deliver this course in Cardiff. The Academy is centrally located, close to Cardiff Central train station and with parking nearby.
Bridgend College campuses are open to students from 8.30am onwards Monday to Friday. We therefore can not accept any responsibility for the safety and welfare of any persons on campus, prior to this time. This excludes pre-arranged trips/events, for which staff will be present at the designated time(s).
