Returner accommodation

If you've enjoyed living in our residences during your first year at University you could return to a residence for your second year too. This applies to all students planning to return to study at Bristol for a full year, including those who have suspended their studies.

Which residences are available and how much do they cost?

All undergraduate residences except Winkworth House, Unite House, Orchard Heights, The Courtrooms, New Bridewell, Hillside Woodside, 97 Woodland Road, St Michael's Hill, St Michael's Park and 121 Redland Road are available. There are a variety of room types available in both catered and self-catered residences. Unfortunately we can't always guarantee you will be able to remain in the same residence or room from year to year. Rents for 2018/19 are available from our accommodation fees page. 

How to apply

Applications for returner accommodation for the 2018/19 academic year are now closed.

What happens next? 

If we are able to make you an offer of returned accommodation, you will receive your offer in late May 2018. To accept your offer you will need to pay a £500 reservation fee. Full details of how to do this will be in your offer email. 


International students currently undertaking a foundation program are guaranteed an offer of returner accommodation if you apply in the first round of applications.
