Please note, it is important that you still apply for accommodation in the normal way. You do not need to put Unite House or Orchard Heights as your preference if you don't want to live there. You should only put either of these residences as your first preference if you want to live there, regardless of whether or not you receive a scholarship.

Terms and conditions

Please see the fees and funding website for full details and terms and conditions of the Unite Scholarship.

The Unite accommodation provided by the scholarship is in the centre of Bristol where I can experience the social side of university whilst being conveniently located to both the main university precinct and the city centre. The opportunity of this scholarship means that my whole experience of university has been greatly enhanced.

When I found out about the Unite Foundation scheme, I was quite literally lost for words because I knew just how much of a difference it would make if my application was successful. I can say without a doubt that without this help, life at university for me both academically and socially, would be three times harder than the average student. My deepest and sincerest gratitude goes to the sponsors and organisers of the scholarship programme.
