LaunchPad Fishponds

LaunchPad is a mixed community housing scheme, set up for University of Bristol students, young people who have been at risk of homelessness, and Key Workers. Their ambition is to bring young people together to build communities and futures.

The LaunchPad Fishponds residence consists of 31 one-bed apartments with shared communal space as well as laundry, bin store and secure cycle parking. No parking is provided as residents are not allowed to have a car as part of their tenancy agreement. The apartments are arranged over three storeys accessed off a covered secure walkway. Each apartment is self-contained with a bedroom, bathroom and small kitchen/dining area. 

Accommodation and fees for 20/21

The accommodation provides each resident with their own self-contained apartment, featuring a bedroom area, small kitchenette and en-suite bathroom facilities. The building also contains a communal space for relaxing and spending time getting to know new friends.

LaunchPad is about more than just a roof. Residents will be invited to be active members of their community, with opportunities for self-management. As part of this we’ll be inviting new residents to shape the shared spaces for the building and help select the furniture over the summer ahead of move-in. So if you’re looking for a home that feels like your own this residence is for you.
