Students walking around Frenchay Campus

Arriving at UWE Bristol

How to find your accommodation and what to do when you arrive including ways to connect with your new flat or housemates.

Finding your accommodation

To find your way to the UWE Bristol campuses, take a look at our campus maps and information.

You can then refer to our accommodation map to locate your particular accommodation.

If you’re living in city centre accommodation, our partners Unite Students or Host Students (who manage the buildings) will send you directions.

Parking on site

Many sites don’t have parking, so bear this in mind when you’re packing. Avoid bringing large heavy boxes that are difficult to carry. Please follow the instructions from the on-site marshals.

Please be advised that there is no allocated parking at the property. You will be able to unload your belongings outside of the property where the driver must stay with the vehicle at all times. You are required to move your vehicle to one of the main UWE car parks once you have unloads your belongings.

Any faults or problems?

We do our best to make sure your accommodation is in good order when you move in. However, if you experience any problems, or find faults when you first get here, please report them to us through our repairs request system, or by calling +44 (0)117 32 83601 (office hours only).

We’ll deal with problems in order of urgency – less urgent ones may take a little longer to rectify at the start of the academic year.

If you’re living in city centre accommodation, please report any problems to your accommodation reception.

Who will I be living with?

Due to data protection regulation, we can’t give you details of your new flat or housemates. However, many students use social networking sites such as Facebook for specific accommodation, to make contact with other people who’ll be living in their area.

If you use social media platform to find flatmates, bear in mind that most of these sites are public, so anyone can view your personal details online.
