It's all here for you.

We believe that when you’re supported by a strong community, you can achieve anything. Everyone here, from our students, staff, industry partners and alumni, is driven by the same goal – how can we make things better? If you share our mindset, welcome to UWE Bristol. You’ll be in excellent company.

We’re home to over 36,000 students from more than 120 countries around the world. Our campuses are spread over three sites, all just a short bus ride away from one another, and the city centre. UWE Bristol is a place to achieve your potential, located in a city that's known for its creativity. If you choose to study here, you don’t need to compromise on anything.

Your new city.

Bristol is a city that’s famous for its independent thinking, unique style and creativity. It tops polls on a regular basis – greenest city, kindest city, UK’s best city to live in – to name just of few of its accolades in recent years. Bristol is both a great place to live and a great place to work too, and is a well-renowned hub for creativity, innovation, research and tech.

Welcoming, friendly and multicultural – are just a few words that are often used to describe Bristol. Home to over 463,000 people, from 187 different countries, you’ll find over 91 different languages spoken here along with 45 religions practised.

A city buzzing with potential – it’s the perfect place to discover yours.

Your UWE Bristol Campuses.

Want to enjoy a welcoming, campus community, but also crave vibrant city living? At UWE Bristol, you'll get both. With three campuses spanning the city, you'll find the right place for you.

Your new home.

Choosing where to live is as exciting as it is nerve-wracking, especially when you’re moving overseas and maybe living away from home for the first time. But rest assured, you’ll feel at home the moment you arrive in one of our accommodation options on campus or in the city centre.

The right choice for you

We have lots of different accommodation options to fit individual tastes and requirements – this includes specially adapted rooms if you have any additional needs. And we’re developing even more, with the first 900 rooms due to be available from September 2030. Our new sustainable accommodation district will be one of the largest low carbon certified developments of its kind anywhere in the world and built to the highest sustainability standard of Passivhaus.

But wherever you choose to live, you can be sure it’ll be safe, well-equipped and comfortable. Want to picture where you’ll be living? Of course you do. See for yourself with our 360° room tours and get all the information you'll need to find your new home.

Your student community.

Your university experience is about more than just study. It’s a time to discover new passions, exchange ideas and make new friends. Our students come from over 120 countries, so you’ll learn about different ideas, perspectives and beliefs. Choose to make the most of it. Step outside your comfort zone and try new things to create your best student experience.

To help you do this, there are lots of sports clubs and societies for you to choose from – something for everyone. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for, why not start your own club or society?
