Helping students find a home in Bristol for over 20 years

About

From a small family run business, to a leading provider of student accommodation in Bristol.
Based primarily in the Fishponds area of Bristol, this makes it ideal if you’re at UWE and studying at the Glenside and Frenchay campuses. In addition to this, we also have large houses in Redland, Montpelier and Cotham. So, if you are studying at UWE or the University of Bristol, we have a house that will be close to your Uni and well connected with transport links to explore Bristol and the best it has to offer.
