You can find us and get directions using the University's Google precinct map.The school is centrally located in the city of Bristol and is easily accessible by various forms of transport.


It is easier and more environmentally-friendly to use public transport, but if you need to drive limited parking is available outside the school. It is metered, expensive and restricted to a maximum of two hours. Please let the people you are visiting know if you are coming by car and they may be able to book a visitor's space in a University car park.
