International students

The University of Bristol is committed to helping international students enjoy their time here as fully as possible. We provide opportunities for you to participate in all aspects of student life and a chance to explore many different cultures. For that reason we offer international students places throughout our residences and with other UK and EU students.

To help you choose your accommodation we provide information on the residences, their locations, facilities and the lifestyle they offer on our residences pages. Please read this carefully before you start an online application. If you have any questions please contact us.

When to apply for accommodation

Accommodation applications for 2020/21 are now closed.

See our guaranteed applicant timeline for details of the stages of the application process. 

You don't need to pay any accommodation fees at this stage, as long as you have accepted your offer of accommodation you will receive an invoice after you have fully registered at University. 

Arriving at my residence

We will send you details about your arrival after you have accepted your accommodation offer. The arrival and moving-in period for all of our residences is 18 September - 4 October 2020, you will be able to book an arrival slot at the end of your online induction.

Please try to arrive on your allocated day as you may find it difficult to find any temporary accommodation in Bristol during this period.
