As a Bristol graduate, you can still enjoy a range of benefits after you leave University, including gym and library membership and discounted hotel accommodation.

Alumni Postgraduate Discount

If you are a graduate of the University, or a current student studying at either undergraduate, masters, or postgraduate research level, you can benefit from the Alumni Postgraduate Discount. We offer alumni of the University of Bristol a 10 per cent reduction in tuition fees for postgraduate programmes.

Use the gym and swimming pool

Why pay expensive gym fees when you can use the University's sports facilities for just under £6 a week? You can apply for affiliated membership and choose between four membership packages, allowing you to access the facilities you want from the new Centre for Sport, Exercise and Health, the Coombe Dingle Sports complex and the swimming pool at the Students' Union.

Use the library

You can use the Arts & Social Sciences library and the Wills Memorial library for reading and reference free of charge or pay an annual subscription fee to borrow books. Apply online, or email lib-access@bristol.ac.uk for more information.

Become an Associate Member of the Students' Union

For an annual fee, you can become an Associate Member of the Students' Union. You'll retain your right to join clubs and societies, make use of the Students' Union facilities (excluding the swimming pool) and access events.
