Support for partners and families

Important information about bringing your partner or children with you to the UK.


UWE Bristol accommodation for international students consists of single study bedrooms. Couples and families who wish to live together can apply for private accommodation.

You can also watch our private accommodation webinar for more information. 

If you would like some help searching for private accommodation, please complete this short form. It is important that you find accommodation before arriving in the UK, as the University cannot offer you a room whilst you search. So please arrange temporary accommodation if needed (such as to stay in an Airbnb or hotel).  

Please contact if you have any questions, or you can post messages on our Facebook chat group to contact UWE Bristol students directly.
