Student pop-up shops at UWE Bristol

UWE Bristol students talk about their exciting pop-up shop ventures hosted at Frenchay Campus.

Have your own space on campus

Pop-up shop

We have three shop units as part of Student Ventures available for student use on the F Block Terrace outside OneZone. Each is a different size, providing flexible space depending on business needs. All have electricity and heating, and one has its own kitchenette with capacity for the preparation of food or beverages.

Pop-up gazebo

For a shorter one-to-three day test trading period, try one of our brand-new pop-up gazebos. This is a great opportunity to test out an idea before progressing onto a full shop for a longer period.


Apply for a pop-up shop or gazebo

Applications are open on an ongoing basis. Find out about the pop-up shop and gazebo criteria and how to apply (InfoHub login required).
