Returner accommodation

If you've enjoyed living in our residences during your first year at University you could return to a residence for your second year too. This applies to all students planning to return to study at Bristol for a full year, including those who have suspended their studies.

Which residences are available and how much do they cost?

All undergraduate residences except Hillside Woodside, 97 Woodland Road, St Michael's Hill, St Michael's Park and 121 Redland Road are available.
