Student life

With Bristol’s central location, outstanding facilities, and active Students' Union, you can enjoy the best of student life. 


We want you to get the most out of your time at university and feel safe, supported, and able to reach your potential. We have a comprehensive network of support services: in residences and academic schools, and through central services such as student counselling and student health. 

Students’ Union 

Every student at the University of Bristol is a member of the Students' Union. Led by students, for students, Bristol SU contributes towards our world-class university experience. Get involved with more than 300 societies, ranging from music and dance to politics to food and drink. 

Sports, exercise, and health 

Bristol SU has more than 70 sports clubs, ranging from cycling to ultimate frisbee, and American football to skydiving – many of which have teams who compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) inter-university league. 

What's it like to live in South West?
Check out our region guide

The South West of England is made up of seven counties, with rural areas surrounding key student cities – from Plymouth and Bournemouth up to Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham & Gloucester.

You'll find many a festival – including the world-famous Glastonbury. And if you're a cider or cheese buff, you'll have plenty to try in the South West. You can always walk it off in Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks, or beautiful countryside from the Cotswolds to Land's End.

Cornwall, Dorset, and Devon are big coastal favourites, with idyllic beaches and waves to test the bravest surfers.
