UoB campus consultation From Page 1 transport access to the car-free campus from south Bristol and the impact that the new campus, which lies east of Temple Meads, would have on parking in Totterdown. UoB said that it will be working with the council to address these concerns. One resident asked how students’ mental health would be looked after. The University of Bristol said that a significant sum has been invested in wellbeing services, accommodation will be purpose-built, and spaces have been designed to allow students to “decompress” and “recover their equilibrium”. At the time South Bristol Voice went to print, the public consultation was due to finish on September 25. It follows the university’s first part of the consultation, which saw proposals put forward for 953bed student accommodation across three 21-storey high building blocks.

Outline planning permission for the campus has already been granted and the public consultation on the student residential accommodation was held in April. Work is anticipated to start on the site next year with the campus anticipated to open in 2022. Professor Guy Orpen, Deputy Vice-Chancellor for New Campus Development, said: “We are creating a dedicated space for collaboration and discovery where businesses, civic partners and the local community can work together with our students, academics and researchers.”
