Renting in Bristol

Students and staff can find out about renting privately in Bristol from the Accommodation Office.

I live in Cotham. It’s a really quiet and picturesque area of Bristol, with easy access to the city centre and the University. I don’t have a car, but you don’t need one living here. It is an expensive area, prices aren’t much less than in London, but for me it’s worth it for such a laid-back and leisurely place to live. It feels safe and also quaint, but still with plenty of pubs and bars nearby.
