Bristol University unveils £20.7 million building scheme
A £20.7 million building scheme will transform accommodation at the University of Bristol’s halls of residence in Stoke Bishop.
Plans have been revealed for new self-catering townhouses and apartment blocks, which will create an additional 327 bedrooms as part of Hiatt Baker Hall, as well as a new transport hub and improved facilities.
The “transport hub”, to replace the existing bus stop on Saville Road, is due for completion in September and will cater for students living in all six halls of residence at Stoke Bishop.
The whole project will be completed by the end of May 2014, ready for new students to move in for the start of the 2014/15 term.

Other aspects of the development at Hiatt Baker Hall include a new road and access from Parry’s Lane to the transport hub, a designated taxi drop-off area, a central square and additional landscaping.
The main reception building will be refurbished to improve and extend facilities including administration, security, the student bar and cafes. The existing library will also be refurbished to provide improved social facilities for the students.
Patrick Finch, bursar at the University of Bristol, said: “We understand that providing high quality accommodation is key to enhancing the experience for students who choose to study at the University of Bristol.
“We pride ourselves on the range of accommodation on offer and these new bedrooms will add further choice. We are also committed to reaching the highest environmental standards, with 20 per cent of electricity for the new halls being generated from renewable sources.”
