Our goals

Our service aims to provide the following to both users of the University of Bristol and the wider community:

Provide an important botanical and horticultural resource in support of the University of Bristol's teaching and research endeavour and its educational commitments to the wider community.

The creation and maintenance of safe, relaxing and stimulating amenity spaces, fostering an environment of learning and teaching excellence.

Conserve the University’s historical and ecologically important external features through careful management.

Where are we?

The main External Estates Office is based on the edge of the Downs at Waltham Cottage Yard next to the University of Bristol Botanic Garden. We are within close proximity to the Stoke Bishop accommodation campus.
