Student Village

Make a home for yourself on Frenchay Campus in our friendly, welcoming Student Village. You'll join a vibrant community of nearly 2,000 students.

You’ll be a short walk from lectures, the library, Students’ Union and all the other campus facilities. And Bristol city centre's just a short bus ride away.

The Village is made up of four courtyards – Brecon, Cotswold, Mendip and Quantock. Around each are flats for six students to share.

All single rooms are en-suite, though there are also some five bedroom flats with larger 'superior en-suite' rooms.
