  • The Roundhouse, containing a library, café, bar and screening room, is due for completion in 2019. It will offer plenty of communal space for working and socialising.

Student Life

  • The Dyson Institute is in Malmesbury, a small Wiltshire market town with independent shops, restaurants and pubs that are frequented by Dyson people – creating a campus-like community in the town.
  • It's an easy drive to nearby towns including Bristol, Bath, Gloucester, and the numerous Cotswold towns in the surrounding area – all with plenty of bars, cafés, shops, music and events.
  • Malmesbury is in the Cotswolds – a vast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that’s perfect for climbing, walking, cycling, riding, sailing, swimming and more – and Dyson has plenty of clubs that make the most of this unique landscape.

Nightlife and Culture

  • There’s a whole series of social activities during students' first term, like go-karting, cookery classes, ice skating, cheering on Bath Rugby and the famous Dyson Christmas Party.
  • In Malmesbury, students are part of a 4,000-strong Dyson community, with daily and weekly clubs and societies to get involved in – from sports, to languages, to board games.
  • Bristol, Bath and the surrounding towns also boast numerous art galleries, museums, music venues, cinemas, theatres, sports events and more – there's always something going on.


  • The Dyson campus is a ten-minute walk from the centre of Malmesbury, and plenty of major towns and cities are less than an hour away by car (including Bristol and Bath, where there is a large Dyson lift-share community).
  • The easiest way to explore the surrounding area is by car. Kemble and Chippenham train stations, both only 20 minutes' drive away, also provide public transport links to London.
  • A free, fortnightly bus service to either Bristol or Bath is available for undergraduate engineers.
