The Hollies accommodation is located opposite to Glenside Campus and is a short walk from Fishponds high street – which has plenty of local independent shops, bars and cafes. 

It puts students within walking distance of lectures, libraries, computer rooms and The Students' Union at UWE. Students also have access to excellent sports facilities at UWE Bristol's Centre for Sport, which is located on Frenchay Campus next to the Student Village.

Due to its location, The Hollies benefits from a more relaxed and leisurely atmosphere. Its proximity to local amenities, Glenside and Frenchay campuses make it the perfect choice for students to study in any of those locations.

The Hollies has a limited number of parking spaces, allowing those planning to do site visits, placements or temporary work requiring car travel. A parking permit needs to be purchased from Accommodation Services and these spaces are issued strictly on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed.
