The exterior of UWE Bristol's Wallscourt House student accommodation

Equal opportunities

Accommodation Services aims to provide services to all students regardless of ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability.

Under the Equality Act 2010 it would be unlawful for a landlord or Accommodation Services to discriminate against students on a basis of age, disability, ethnicity, faith/belief, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or on the grounds of their civil partnership status, in advertising the accommodation or by the terms under which the accommodation is let.

A resident landlord, however, is able to choose who they want to live in their home (eg they may prefer a female if they are a female living on their own) but Accommodation Services can not specify these preferences when advertising accommodation.
