Choosing your undergraduate accommodation

Here at Bristol we have a wide range of accommodation and we know there are lots of factors that might affect which one of our residences is right for you. Included on this page are some of the key elements that might influence where you want to live, to help you decide which of our residences is best suited to you. 

Your accommodation preferences

When you fill out the accommodation application form you will get to choose three preferred residences. We cannot guarantee to meet your preference but in our 2016 intake of students, 90% of applicants got either their first or second option. Because some residences are oversubscribed (see the applications to spaces ratio for 2016 (PDF)), not all residences are available for each preference. Details of the residences available per preference (PDF) will help you to see which options you have for each of your choices.

Other factors to consider that might influence your preferences are detailed below:

Our global community

Clifton Hill House is home to the University's global community - providing residents with an opportunity to meet and become friends with fellow students from all around the world.

Health and disability

If you have any health issue or disability that influences where you can live, you should also read our health and disability pages about what we can do for you.
