Choosing your undergraduate accommodation

Here at Bristol we have a wide range of accommodation and we know there are lots of factors that might affect which one of our residences is right for you. Included on this page are some of the key elements that might influence where you want to live, to help you decide which of our residences is best suited to you. 

Your accommodation preferences

When you fill out the accommodation application form you will get to choose three preferred residences. We cannot guarantee to meet your preference but in our 2017 intake of students, 90% of applicants got either their first or second option. Because some residences are oversubscribed (see the applications to spaces ratio for 2018 (PDF)), not all residences are available for each preference. Details of the residences available per preference (PDF) will help you to see which options you have for each of your choices.

Other factors to consider that might influence your preferences are detailed below:

Our residence locations

Our residences are grouped into three villages. Each village has a Student Support Centre, open 24 hours a day 7 days a week offering services and support to students in our residences. 

Health and disability

If you have any health issue or disability that influences where you can live, you should also read our health and disability pages about what we can do for you.
