Hey! It seems every UWE applicant i’ve spoken to so far this year is studying on the Frenchay campus. Is anyone going to be in Bower Ashton starting in September?

Fine art for me. So Bower Ashton and Spike island is where I'll be. What are you studying?

Nelson & Drake or Transom look to be closest. I'm having an accommodation tour next week at an offer-holders day, so may well refine my choices then. Have you got any preferences yet?

I went to see Nelson & Drake on the open day back in summer and honestly I wasn’t impressed, I don’t think anyone on that accommodation tour was tbh haha. I was leaning towards Marketgate but that one has a bit of a reputation lmao

Hi all. Just wondering, has The campus situation not put you off a little? I have an offer for september at bower ashton to but am not keen by the fact it's so far out from everything and the city accomodation options don't look great for the price. It's a bus from accom to bower and then even further to main campus for SU and other things, have read it feels a little isolating.
Looking for some advice and comments because love bristol as a city and nightlife is sick but don't love the idea of being so far from everything :\
thanks x

really weird but any chance you could share any pics of anything of when you go visit the accomodation as I can't make an offfer holder day but am coming to visit in a couple of weeks but they said no to me.

I hear what you say, and I have looked at places with more integrated campuses Falmouth, PCA and Plymouth uni and its a tough call. And Bath Spa art at Locksbrook is similarly distant from main campus. In an ideal world I'd have Bath spa facilities in Falmouth's campus set in Bristol! Ultimately my final choice is still to be set, but practical issues (family connections) as well as my own love of Bristol may sway the decision. And the city campus distances don't seem excessive (probably won't go to Frenchay much).

I thought about that for a while but i’ve taken the bus from Bower to the accommodations and it was only like 10/15 minutes door to door so I don’t think it’s too bad x

i didn’t take any pictures on the day sorry ( it was all a bit rushed the tour and there were loads of us there, but like to describe it the hallways and stairs of Nelson and Drake House really smelt bad and in the shared bathroom they used as a show room the toilet seat was literally detached on the floor,, it just didn’t appeal to me at all which is odd because it seems to be a popular opinion :// x

Not a lot to report. Only got to look at Phoenix (next door to market gate). What I saw was really clean, good feel, 5 rooms per flat and entirely? en-suite. From what I understand Nelson Drake has larger flats and more shared bathrooms. Hth.
