This accommodation is part of the West Residential Village. Home to around 3,000 students, this is the largest residential village in terms of the area it covers. Most residences are based in Clifton, with some located near Park Street and Gloucester Road. Clifton is a popular and picturesque suburb of Bristol known for its Georgian architecture, cafe culture, and green spaces. Park Street boasts a selection of quirky shops, bars, and restaurants, and has several works of street art by the world-famous artist, Banksy. Bristol's independent and thriving, Gloucester Road, is reputedly the longest independent shopping street in Europe. Students benefit from being both close to the University campus and to the city centre. Students living in the West Village have access to the Student Support Centre based in Clifton Hill House.
