Accommodation, safety and support


Subject to conditions, University-allocated accommodation is guaranteed to new first year undergraduate students. Our residences are split into three residential villages located throughout Bristol, with regular transport links connecting them to the campus.


Bristol is known for being a friendly and vibrant city with a fantastic atmosphere for students. It is also a safe city, having been awarded Purple Flag status and 'secured environment' status in a police certification scheme. The University has its own Security Services and University Police Officer.


We are committed to providing a comprehensive network of student services including wellbeing, academic and funding services to ensure students flourish at Bristol. We work in partnership with Bristol Students' Union to understand the needs of our students, and are proud to have become one of the first universities to receive the Mental Health Charter Award.
