Nelson and Drake House city centre accommodation

Nelson and Drake House

If you’re studying at our City, Frenchay, or Glenside campuses, Nelson and Drake House offers a top-quality accommodation option right in the centre of the city.

Managed by our partners Unite Students, the development has been extensively refurbished, so you’ll benefit from recently-decorated rooms, a new common room, study room and courtyard.

Living on Rupert Street just by the Hippodrome, you’ll have all the bars, cafes and shops on your doorstep, and Frenchay Campus a short bus journey away.

A great option if you want:

  • To live centrally, with easy access to shopping, places to eat and go out, and part-time work opportunities
  • Good transport links (there’s a bus stop to Frenchay right outside)
