Welcome to the East Village
We are both looking forward to getting to know many of you over the year. The East Village of residences is a fantastic place to live. While our residences are dispersed, we have some of Bristol’s finest offerings right on our doorstep. It is a lively and exciting place to discover.
We’re based in the Student Support Centre at the Hawthorns, but will also be out and about in residences, so if you see us please do say hello. We hope you have a great year; if you have any questions, ideas or concerns, please do come and talk to us!
