Bristol’s new campus, located next to Temple Meads train station, is the University’s biggest ever capital investment. When it opens in 2023, it will provide critical high-quality spaces for teaching, research and innovation, student accommodation and community engagement.

The campus will bring together world-class digital scientists, engineers and social scientists. Students, businesses, government and local community groups will be the University's partners, helping to shape education and outreach programmes.
