Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus

A new campus for Bristol

We're planning to build a new £300 million campus at Temple Meads.

Our plans, the planning process, the site and its setting, transport and how you can get involved in shaping the new campus.

The Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus will give us opportunities to work with the city, create jobs and celebrate Bristol culture. The development will turn an eyesore into a green, open campus that benefits the whole city.

Our new campus will concentrate on educating postgraduate students, attracting top talent from across the UK and around the world.

We’re talking with communities, businesses and the Council to shape our plans, which include landmark buildings for postgraduate teaching, learning and collaboration. Work here will focus on digital technologies, the innovation they drive and and how they're used by people, organisations and industry.

We’ll also expand our successful Engine Shed enterprise hub and build a new student village together with improvements to the public realm, including new cycle and pedestrian links to the surrounding area and high-quality landscaping.

Progress update

After two rounds of public consultation from June to September we’ve now submitted our outline planning application. You can view the plans on the Bristol City Council website.

The outline planning application incorporates the proposed density and scale of the buildings, as well as access to the site. It doesn’t cover specific details about the appearance and layout of the new campus, which will be submitted at a later stage of the planning application process. 

Following feedback from Bristol City Council and other partners, we have submitted a revised master plan that shows changes to the layout of the buildings on the campus to allow easier access through the site and provide more open and welcoming spaces for staff, students and local communities to enjoy.

We’re in the process of appointing a design team and if our outline planning application is supported by the Council, we’ll run a public consultation on the detailed plans later this year.

The council is working to prepare the site and you can read more about this here.

We’re really keen to hear your thoughts and feedback as the project develops. You can contact the team at temple-quarter@bristol.ac.uk  

Our commitments

We will build a (largely) postgraduate campus that’s at the forefront of digital and business research, education, skills and innovation.

Our building designs will be forward-thinking and socially conscious.

We will put economic, social and environmental sustainability at the heart of our campus.

We will create new public walking, cycling and bus routes, and encourage staff and students to leave their cars at home.

We will work with local communities, employers, and public services to create a campus that’s embedded in the life of the city.
