  1. General information

    The University of the West of England, or as it’s more commonly known, UWE, lies just outside of Bristol in the West of England – as the name suggests! It was granted University status in 1992, and has continued to be a hotspot on the education map ever since.

    With around 27,000 students enrolling each year, the community is vibrant across all levels of study, and there is increasingly more diversity reflected throughout the student body. In fact, over 140 countries are represented there!

    UWE is unique and modern, providing students with ample support and employability skills throughout their time at the institution.

    The standard of teaching is a real focal point at UWE, ensuring that a quality education is enjoyed by all.

    Our student accommodation at UWE places you at the very heart of the student experience, to ensure that you get the very best from both work and play!

  2. The campus

    UWE is located just outside Bristol city centre; one of the most interesting and creative cities here in the UK.

    There are several campuses, including Frenchay, Bower Ashton and Glenside. Each provides state-of-the-art facilities for the particular areas of study in which they specialise – in fact, they’re among some of the best in the world. Frenchay is the largest campus, and acts as the main one for the University.

    The campuses aren’t just ideal for study, there are bars, shops and cafes. There is even a huge sporting complex at Frenchay, which is perfect for fitness and sports societies. UWE Students’ Union boasts a wide range of activities and opportunities.

    Of course, Bristol itself is a fascinating city, and the campuses are well-served with great transport links to the city itself.

    Our UWE student accommodation places you at the heart of all the action, to best suit your time at the University!

    National Code of Standards logo

    Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.

    The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.

    What does being a member of the codes mean?

    • Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
    • Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
    • If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
    • The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
