Shared rooms

Studying at the University of Bristol has proved very popular this year and there has been an increase in the number of students holding guaranteed offers of accommodation in university-allocated residences. To make sure as many students as possible are offered University-allocated accommodation, we have shared rooms which are suitable for double occupancy.

In our twin rooms, you will share a room with another undergraduate student of the same gender. Living in a shared room can be a great way to meet new people at University and, because you pay a reduced fee, it's a cost-saving option too.

What will be in the room?

There will be two separate single beds. We will try to put two of everything into the room but this may not always be possible, but you will have access to study space outside of your room. Photos on this page show an example of one of our temporary shared rooms, to give you an idea of what to expect. You will need to sort out sharing the space with your room mate - sharing dorms is usual practise in the USA and there are loads of tips online about getting to know your new room mate and making the sharing arrangement work for you both. 

What rent will I pay

Sharing offers a good budget option, with shared rooms starting at £90 per week for a basic twin room through to £175 per week for a half-board en suite twin. The rent on the room you are offered will be included in your offer. 

What if I don’t get on with my sharer?

You can speak to staff at your residence Student Support Centre or the Accommodation Office. We will provide help and support, and if necessary can look to move you later into the start of term when some availability opens up if a share really isn’t working out.
