Hi, I'm coming to Bristol in September to start a PGCE course and need to find somewhere to live. I don't really want to live in halls, ideally I'd like to find a houseshare with other postgrads. Any ideas on where to start looking?

Hi Marina,
I am a prospective postgraduate student too. I am still not sure on whether I will stay in university accommodation or a private flat since I am still considering both options.

if you want we can have a chat here on TSR .

I've found this interesting document on the university's website, have a check

There is no shortage of accom in Bristol but here are some ways to find something :

1) Uni of Bristol's Student Union has its own (good) lettings service designed to weed out the bad landlords - http://ubulettings.co.uk/ - flats and rooms.

2) Student Spare Room is a good way to find spare rooms in existing flatshares - http://student.spareroom.co.uk/

3) For conventional Lettings agency stuff - http://www.nestoria.co.uk/bristol/property/rent

Good areas to look at are Clifton (a bit 'posh' but mostly beautiful buildings), Redland, Cotham (both cheaper), Whiteladies Road area (main route to Uni - good shopping). Avoid Stokes Croft.

Hiya,

just to offer you another option, College Green is a small private hall overlooking College Green! We tent to get a large number of postgrads stay with us as we offer studios and 2 bed apartments. There is an on-site gym, cinema room, games room and common room, so its a great place to meet people but you can escape to the comfort of your own room very easily!

Just thought i would offer it as an option! http://www.collegiate-ac.com/uk-student-accommodation/bristol/college-green

I wish you luck in your search

Laura

I am also looking for the same, I will be starting my MSc in Biomedical Sciences Research, but I am having a hard time finding something that really satisfies me, I have looked at the university accomodation, UBU lettings and CRM and Collegiate. I also don´t want to live with undergrads, I´m no entirely sure about the university accomodation. Let me know if you find something!

Hey I haven't really started looking yet, but I am also hoping to study Science Communication in September provided I don't completely fail my degree. I would also like to live in the city as it will probably be easier in terms of work.

Hello everyone!
I will be studying MEd in Psychology of Education at the University of Bristol and I am a bit worried about accommodation. As it seems I am non-guaranteed for the university's halls and as a result I started searching for en-suite bedrooms in private halls. Why is it so difficult to find a place to live in a reasonable price?? I see that almost every en-suite bedroom in Halls is already sold-out!:confused:
What are your thoughts?

Hi Laura, how's the accommodation hunt going? My masters is at UWE so I'm looking to stay somewhere near the bus station or that has decent parking

Hey I've been talking to some people who might be interested in sharing, I've told them what I'm looking for so they're going to get back to me soon hopefully. If that doesn't work out I'll let you know and we can maybe look into sharing a place
