Campus and facilities
Spread over three campuses, all just a short bus ride from one another, each site offers something unique. Over the last five years, we've invested £300 million into our state-of-the-art facilities. Creating the most effective and empowering setting for our students and people to discover their potential.
All you need to know about our campuses.
Just four miles north of the city centre (15 minutes by Metrobus), Frenchay is where most of our students study and many choose to live too, making the most of the new purpose-built facilities.
City Campus is UWE Bristol’s creative and cultural industries campus made up of sites at Bower Ashton, Spike Island, Arnolfini and Watershed.
Glenside Campus is three miles northeast of the centre. Picturesque and well-equipped, it's an inspirational place to study, and is home to many of our allied health, nursing and midwifery students.
