Wallscourt Park residences
We’re adding more student accommodation at Frenchay so that more of our first-year students can live on campus if they want to.
An additional 965 further bed spaces have been added overall, with new buildings providing a wider and more varied choice of accommodation at lower rents than in our existing Student Village. The new accommodation development is located adjacent to the Wallscourt Farmhouse. Read more about our Wallscourt Park accommodation.
The £38 million Wallscourt Park development forms part of UWE Bristol’s Campus 2020 strategic programme, which includes providing high-quality student accommodation for more than 3,600 students living on Frenchay Campus.
In the first phase, we added just over 400 student bedrooms in a shared townhouse style, with each unit accommodating up to 12 students with shared bathrooms. Construction began in January 2014 and was completed in time for the 2015/16 academic year. The feedback from the first 164 students who moved into the townhouses was overwhelmingly positive.
The second phase of Wallscourt Park comprised 561 rooms in four, five and six storey buildings designed to complement neighbouring blocks. There was also a small number of studio flats within this development. The £23 million build ran from January 2016 and was completed in time for the 2017/18 academic year.
Further residential developments
This project is the second in a three-phase development which will eventually provide around 1,200 bed spaces on Frenchay Campus and is part of our new campus project.
