New student accommodation build proposal

Welcome to the online exhibition of UWE Bristol’s emerging proposals to provide 2,250 new student residences on the Frenchay Campus. The document below provides a background on the need for the development and an overview of the proposals. In brief, the project involves the provision of 2,250 new student residences on the Frenchay Campus split between the site of the existing Carroll Court student residences (Site1) and car parks 1, 2 and 3 (Site 2).

Your feedback

The public consultation for the new student accommodation build proposal has now closed.

Thank you for taking the time to participate. The comments, ideas and suggestions received will now be considered by the project team as the final proposals are developed in more detail.

The feedback received and the design teams' response will be set out within the Statement of Community Involvement that will be submitted with the planning applications that will be submitted to South Gloucestershire Council later this year.

Further information on the student accommodation build proposal can be found below. 

Site 1 - Redevelopment of Carroll Court

The redevelopment of the Carroll Court site will form the first phase of development providing 881 bed spaces within three blocks of accommodation. This will result in a net increase of 629 bed spaces.

Site 2 - Redevelopment of car parks 1, 2 and 3

The development of car parks 1, 2 and 3 site will form the second phase of development for which the construction programme has not yet been established. The intention is to seek outline planning permission for the principle of developing the site to provide new student accommodation.

Site 3 - Replacement car park

Site 3 has been identified as a suitable location to reprovide the car parking that is to be lost by the new student accommodation developments.
