Where is the North Residential Village?
The North Village residences are all located on a large campus of accommodation in Stoke Bishop, which is about two miles from the main University campus. The site includes gardens and space for socialising and relaxing, and the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Avon Gorge and Clifton Downs and are all within walking distance.
There is a regular bus service and good cycle links to the main campus. Your accommodation fee includes a bus pass for the Bristol UniBus U1 service. This is a fast and frequent bus service linking the North Village with the Clifton campus and the city centre, which takes approximately 16 minutes. The pass will allow you to have unlimited travel on this service (term time only) for the academic year.
Alternatively, it is a short cycle from the North Village to the University campus, taking approximately 14 minutes.
What's life like in the North Village?
Because our North Village residences are on a campus of accommodation the village is often popular with students who are looking for a large student community. Being away from the city centre, it can feel to some students like a quieter option than the busy city centre - but with 2500 students living together quiet isn't a word we would use to describe it!
The trees and large green spaces on the campus provide some great areas for relaxing on sunny days and there is a greater sense of space than in our other villages. However, you're further out of town and so need to think about transport and factor in travel time to lectures. It's also worth noting that it's not easy to pop home for lunch when you're on campus, so you might want to plan to take a lunch with you.
It's also important to remember that although you'll be able to select North Village residences as options in your application, the University will allocate your residence so an offer of accommodation in a specific village cannot be guaranteed - find out more on our how to apply pages.
