Accessible, adapted rooms available on Frenchay Campus.

Additional support options

Assistive animals in accommodation

We can accommodate guide dogs and other assistance animals in the Frenchay Student Village and Wallscourt Park. This accommodation is first-come, first-served, so let us know your requirements as soon as possible. We will require formal evidence from a doctor before we can process a request of this nature and your animal must be registered as a support animal.

Hearing and visual impairments

We can include visual fire alarms and vibrating pad alarms for students with hearing impairments.

Individual adaptations

We may be able to make other adaptations on an individual basis, for example if you have a visual impairment, or need a personal medication fridge/freezer (as long as we get enough notice these are needed).

Need adaptations or a specific room type?

Please let us know your requirements as early as possible and get your application for accommodation in early. We’ll contact you for more information to make sure we’re clear on your specific needs.

Medical questionnaire

Please complete a medical questionnaire to give us more detailed information to support your accommodation application – we may ask you to supply medical evidence to support your request.

Need extra support?

Our Wellbeing Service is here to help. See their useful information for parents, guardians and friends and self-help resources.
