In addition to our office space we have three studios. Studio 1 is our main broadcast studio, Studio 2 is our DJ studio and music department work room, while Studio 3 is our production studio and news room. We also have a Record Library in Westwood used for storage of equipment and records.
 
OUR PEOPLE...
 
 
With over 100 members, 1449AM URB is the largest Student Media outlet at the University of Bath Students' Union.
The station is headed up by a dedicated team of 12 students who make up URB's committee. With the exception of the Station Manager, who oversees all of the station's operations, each member of the committee heads up a department within URB, including presenting, engineering and everything in-between.

OUR HISTORY...
1449AM URB is one of the UK's oldest student radio stations dating back to May 1973.

From our humble beginnings as 'URB 963' broadcasting from a cupboard in the Electrical Engineering department, our station has grown leaps and bounds transforming us from a organisation broadcasting via induction loops from Reel-to-Reel tape recorders and vinyl decks to one of the most professional student radio facilities in the UK.
